Davis Estates has several intimate tasting experiences that are available by appointment only. My recommendation would be to reach out to them at least 2-3 weeks in advance.
My Two Favorite Wines:
2014 Davis Estates Zephyr: I was quite surprised how much I liked this wine. It is different than many red blends I have had and I loved it. So easy to drink and I think this would be a crowd pleaser at any dinner! With two full years of barrel age, this wine is well structured and shows good tannin depth and weight.
2014 Davis Estates Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon: Okay y'all know how much I love my Howell Mountain Cabernets, this is another one that I LOVE! Need I say more? Okay fine here are the notes: Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon is known for producing classic and elegant structured wines that will age for decades. This 2014 Davis Estates Howell Mountain Cabernet is just that. Big and round on the pallet and layers of Cabernet spices, fruits and oak tones in the aroma. The wine was aged in 60% new French oak for an extra 6 months the balance the structure and develop supple tannins. This extra barrel aging results in a beautiful wine that has excellent aging potential, but is so nice to enjoy now.
I highly recommend requesting the patio for your tasting if it is a nice day!
These views... I could stay up here all day everyday!
Hope you go visit and enjoy it just as much as I do, my winos!
