Davis Family Vineyards is located on a ridge top in the center of California’s renowned Russian River Valley. We have Zinfandel vines that were planted in 1896, and young hillside plantings of Pinot Noir, Syrah, and Chardonnay. We also make a few barrels of Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon with grapes from friends like the Dutton Family, who have deliciously distinctive vineyards. We are a small family winery that thinks everything matters from vineyard to bottle. We make only small lots of wine and literally handcraft each and every one. We are passionate in our pursuit and believe wine is an essential element in a rich and wonderful life---adding a delicious layer to both meals and to friendships. Read less

This is notably spicy with a nice oak underlay over which one finds nicely stemmy, treebark, soil driven wild cherry and rhubarb notes. Superb precision in the mouth with sweetness to the fruit but the acidity is vibrant and keeps the mouthfeel taut and nervous. The tannins offer a slight astringent contrast to the sweetness. The flavors are lightly mineral and soil streaked with a touch of vanilla early on and pure wild cherry on the mid-palate. There’s a flourish if herbs on the back end before the fruit emerges on the finish, framed with gentle spice and mineral notes. A pretty classic if restrained California interpretation of Pinot with a bit of heat on the finish. 90pts

Intense on the nose with lightly jammy notes of strawberry accented with hints of gingerbread, vanilla, a lightly earthy, nutty poppyseed note, a faint peach note and some toasty wood accents. A little light on entry then powering up through the mid-palate. This is bright and juicy with finely polished tannins lending the mouth a slippery, slick texture. There’s nice transparently in the mouth though this takes on a bit more weight and sweetness on the moderately long finish. Fairly complex, though subtle at the same time, with measured buy obvious toasty oak from front to back. 90pts
