|Winery Name:||Schramsberg Vineyards, USA
|Winemaker(s):||Hugh Davies, Keith Hock and Sean Thompson|
|Other Details:||Hugh Davies and his winemaking team have crafted a Cabernet Sauvignon that is the expression of the historic Diamond Mountain vineyards he has explored from early childhood. Named in honor of his father Jack L. Davies, this is a wine crafted with 40 years of intimate knowledge of a place and a passion to create a world class red wine.
The 2003 vintage is the third vintage of this wine. It is the product of more than twelve years of experimentation, carried out by winemakers Hugh Davies, Craig Roemer, and consulting enologist Alan Tenscher. The first red table wine grapes were planted on the Davies family Napa Valley estate in 1994. Vineyard layout, rootstock, clonal and grape variety selection were revised over time with a particular emphasis on refining the tight structure and tannic nature characteristic of Diamond Mountain hillside fruit. Only the continuing success of J Davies' sister winery Schramsberg afforded the winemaking team the luxury of 12 years time to perfect their first Bordeaux varietal blend.
