DAVID ARTHUR 2011 CABERNET SAUVIGNON "THREE ACRE" NAPA VALLEY 750mL

The David Arthur Estate is located high on Pritchard Hill, on the eastern side of the Napa Valley. The rough mountain terrain and rocky red soils provide ideal growing conditions for wine grapes such as Cabernet Sauvignon. In 1978, Donald Long and his 28 year old son David began the epic job of building roads, clearing land and finally planting wine grapes. Although David lacked a formal viticultural education, he learned hands-on by working in the vineyards and cellars of local wineries such as the Chappellet and Joseph Phelps. The first vintage of Chardonnay was harvested in 1985, followed by Cabernet Sauvignon in the nineties. A s his experience and knowledge of the land grew, David learned the ability of these hills to grow the very finest wine grapes. Today, with the help of a highly insightful team, David Arthur continues to cultivate rich concentrated wine grapes that in turn help them craft distinctive and memorable wines.

Predominately Cabernet Sauvignon with a little Petit Verdot, this wine has a dark ruby-red color baked cranberry, raspberries and baked plum; followed by spices of powdered ginger and hints of molasses, coco powder and toffee. The entry is rich and focused with firm mid palate tannins, cherry-cassis and minerality. The finish is long and chewy with chocolate-coffee like tannins. Best from 2014 to 2025.

ANTONIO GALLONI 91 POINTS - "The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Three Acre shows lovely immediacy in its dark red/purplish fruit. The tannins are firm, but also well integrated, which adds to the wine's overall balance. Savory herbs, licorice and new leather notes develop as the wine opens up in the glass. The 2011 is understated and pretty, but everything is in the right place. The tannins are a bit dry on the finish, but that is a relatively small critique. The 2011 Three Acre is 89% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Petit Verdot from the estate's young vines."
