The Davies family of Schramsberg Vineyards and J. Davies Estate in Napa Valley is pleased to release their 2012 vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon and 2013 vintage of Pinot Noirs.
Expanding from the knowledge gained through the production of the J. Davies Estate Cabernet Sauvignon from Diamond Mountain, our collection of Cabernet Sauvignon is an exploration of new Napa Valley vineyard sites. Each vineyard site provides the winemaking team unique flavor characteristics from the varietal, allowing them the opportunity to produce a wine that is strikingly different than the J. Davies Estate wine, while still delicious and singular to the vineyard from which it came.
The family’s experience with Pinot Noir dates back to 1967, when Jack and Jamie Davies first used this elegant red varietal to make their inaugural vintage of Blanc de Noirs sparkling wine. Over the 45 years following that first use, Schramsberg’s winemakers have built long-lasting relationships with some of the best Pinot Noir growers in the North Coast.
Developing upon this passion, history, and experience, second-generation vintner Hugh Davies, winemaker Sean Thompson, and the Davies/Schramsberg team are proud to release these new wines for the Davies Vineyards collection.
