TN: 2006 J. Davies Cabernet Sauvignon (USA, California, Napa Valley, Diamond Mountain)

  • 2006 J. Davies Cabernet Sauvignon - USA, California, Napa Valley, Diamond Mountain (12/11/2009)
    I’ve been a member of Schramsberg’s club for years. In fact, it is the only wine club I belong to – their quarterly shipments keep me in enough excellent sparkling wine to satisfy my needs and tastes. Every once in a while, they include a bottle of J. Davies still wine in the club shipment. I wasn’t a fan of the 2005 but the 2006 J. Davies Cabernet is excellent. Warm rhubarb pie, cinnamon, espresso, and a bit of Italian herb. Not overpowering, this medium body and finish wine compliments the meal. Not expecting much, I opened this wine tonight as a cellar defender. Too bad I didn’t hold on to it. It is going to get better over the next 2-3 years. At my club discount, this wine is tempting to repurchase at $63. At $75 retail, not so much. (89 pts.)
