The history of David Arthur Vineyards and the Long Family in the Napa Valley reaches back a half-century to the 1950s. At that time, Donald Long began steadily investing in land on Pritchard Hill. He owned a small grocery business in Menlo Park, and had long been interested in and drawn to the California wine industry. His vision and commitment to build a legacy and business for his family led to the acquisition of nearly 1,000 acres. Nearly two decades later, in the late 1970s, that vision came to fruition when his son David began planting vines on the property. Today, two generations work together to continue the family tradition at David Arthur Vineyards. The Land The winery and estate vineyards of David Arthur are situated high above the northeastern end of the Napa Valley, on Pritchard Hill. At elevations between 1,000-1,200 feet, Pritchard Hill boasts rocky volcanic soils, and a unique microclimate of very warm days and cool nights. The rough terrain stresses the vines, limiting grape production Read more »

  • David Arthur Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Elevation 1147 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Their cult wine. Something special for sure. Decadent but not overripe or overpowered with alcohol. Everything is in harmonious balance with this wine and it was a real treat that he shared it with us. Highly recommended.- Tasted with David Long, Owner on the "Meritaggio Tour Bus" 2/27/10 Read More

  • David Arthur Cabernet Sauvignon St. Helena Estate 2007

    Snoothrank:

    A very nice cab, but I think it's a tad young yet. Needs more time for the youthful fruit to balance with the alcohol and tannins. Given a couple more years, should show as well as the 2004 we drank. - Tasted with David Long, Owner on the "Meritaggio Tour Bus" 2/27/10 Read More

  • David Arthur Cabernet Sauvignon St. Helena Estate 2004

    Snoothrank:

    Spectacular pure Napa cab nose. This is a rich, opulent wine on the palate complimented by silky tannins and deep, pure fruit. Nice hint of vanilla on the finish. I am thankful he poured so generously, as I really enjoyed this one.- Tasted with David Long, Owner on the "Meritaggio Tour Bus" 2/27/10 Read More

  • David Arthur Supertuscan Blend Napa Valley Meritaggio 2007

    Snoothrank:

    I liked this better than the 2004, the pepper tones are more muted and less overpowering in this blend. Very nice wine.- Tasted with David Long, Owner on the "Meritaggio Tour Bus" 2/27/10 Read More

  • David Arthur Supertuscan Blend Napa Valley Meritaggio 2004

    Snoothrank:

    A Bordeaux blend with malbec replaced with sangiovese. It's a wine with a wonderfully fragrant nose. A spicy, peppery blend with hints of menthol or eucalyptus. - Tasted with David Long, Owner on the "Meritaggio Tour Bus" 2/27/10 Read More

  • David Arthur Supertuscan Blend Napa Valley Meritaggio 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Phenomenal. Juicy, delectable. Split a 1/2 bottle three ways pre-meal. Left each of us with warmth and joy. Spicy currant with currents (ha) of chocolate. Dark red fruits. Very drinkable. Low on tannins. Read More
