Our 2013 Elevation is massive wine with a dense deep ruby color offering aromas of spicy brambled baked fruit of blackberry and currant, that transition to earth driven aromatics of forest-wet soil, cocoa nibs, and spice tones like wild sage/bay laurel, bergamot/black tea and hints of cedar. The palate is rich, broad and fleshy with a seductively fine grain, yet rigidly built texture finishing with baked cherry, licorice candy and persistence. Best from 2016 to 2036.

VinousThe 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Elevation 1147 is another wine that has turned out even better than I had expected. The Elevation 1147 is the deepest and richest of the David Arthur Cabernets, but it also has much of the precision found in the Old Vine that gives it a total sense of completeness. Shades of plum, mocha, espresso, new leather and cloves meld into the ample, textured finish.

Wine AdvocateLastly, usually the most famous wine produced at this winery is the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Elevation 1147. Clearly the most backward of the three wines, it possesses more tannin, structure and density. More of a long-term proposition than its two siblings, this wine has a dense purple color, good structure and ripeness, beautiful, flowery crème de cassis and spice. It is intense and full-bodied, but patience will be required. Forget it for the next 4-5 years and drink it over the following 25 or more.

Wine SpectatorServes up a steeped black tea edge to the dried berry and currant flavors, making this somewhat murky in focus. Features a rich-bodied mouthfeel. Drink now through 2024. 677 cases made.
