ABOUT THE WINE

Davis Family Vineyards embodies the best of Sonoma County winemaking. Their drive to handcraft wines from earth-friendly farming practices has led the Davis family to create a portfolio of award-winning wines that delight critics and please palates. When this benchmark Sonoma County winery released its first vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon in 1997, it was named “One of the Top 20 Wines of the Vintage” by Norm Roby and The New York Times.

Twenty years later, Davis Family Vineyards offers this special Meritage blend from hillside vineyards high above Lake Sonoma in the eminent Rockpile AVA to mark its 20th anniversary. Using all five Bordeaux varietals, Winemaker Guy Davis has handcrafted a never before, never again wine of exceptional character, complexity and balance. It is a celebration of both twenty years as a Sonoma County family winery, as well as the remarkable 2017 vintage.
