After nearly forty years of farming grapes on their Pritchard Hill Estate, David Arthur Vineyards announced the launch of the Next Generation of wine ~ DAV. They have created a new, modern wine that represents the bold personality found in each and every bottle of their Estate wines. This Bordeaux-style blend allows them to weave together the rich, concentrated elegance and power of their mountain-grown Bordeaux varietals as well as the best of surrounding vineyards within the Napa Valley. The wine is aged an average of 20 months in French oak barrels, blended with meticulous care and bottled at their vineyard estate. The result is a complex array of aromas and flavors that deliver plush, mouth-filling structure with soft, elegant tannins. They hope you will enjoy the accessibility and near-term enjoyment this wine offers in its youth and the greater nuance and complexity afforded with cellaring as they do.
DAV delivers a dark cerise color, offering an array of fruit and spice aromas; bright cherry, red raspberry, baked cassis, and plum followed by notes of anise, baking spices, garrigue and cherry cola. The palate is soft and plush with fine-grained tannins offering beautiful acidity and structure. The finish is long and silky with flavors of candied plum, tamarind, brown sugar and molasses.
We are thrilled to include a bottle of their 2019 DAV Proprietary Red Blend wine in our Hollywood Swag Bags being gifted to the nominees honoring Oscar weekend. Click here to read more about their story!
