David Arthur Elevation 1147 2011
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Rutherford|
Wine AdvocateDavid Arthur's flagship wine, the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Elevation 1147 is the best wine of this group. Rich, deep, creme de cassis, licorice, forest floor and a hint of subtle smoke are present in this medium-bodied effort. With outstanding concentration and purity as well as low acidity and ripe tannins, it should drink well for 7-10 years.
Wine SpectatorDelivers moderately ripe plum, raspberry and blackberry fruit shaded by dusty cedar notes. The red fruit flavors are joined by a dash of licorice, tailing off on the finish. Drink now through 2022.
