Davis Family Vineyards is located on a ridge top in the center of California's renowned Russian River Valley. They have Zinfandel vines that were planted in 1896, and young hillside plantings of Pinot Noir, Syrah, and Chardonnay. They also make a few barrels of Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon with grapes from friends like the Dutton Family and Lewelling, who have deliciously distinctive vineyards. Guy Davis began his artisan winemaking career in the late 80's working in the vineyards and winery at Sky Vineyards at the top of the Mayacamas Mountains. He lustfully furthered his knowledge and craft by working with some of the best producers in California, and France, as well as Argentina and New Zealand. Add to that 10 years of continuing education at UC Davis and in their own Russian River Vineyards, they arrive at their current quest for palatial perfection. They are a small family winery that thinks everything matters from vineyard to bottle making only small lots of wine and literally handcraft each and every one. They believe wine is an essential element in a rich and passionate life. It adds an extra layer of flavors to both meals and to friendships. And like a lover, wine has a sensuality of perfumed aromas and silky, supple textures—endless charm and character that brings many pleasures to our senses and our spirits!

    Smoky, funky earth opens this appellation wine, richly oaked and possessed of youthful tannin. Succulent blackberry and blueberry mix on the medium-bodied, velvety palate.
  • Davis Family 2013 'CAB 5' Bordeaux Blend, Rockpile Ridge
    Wine Enthusiast
    Rating: 90 (4/1/2017)

    From an appellation better known for Zin, this blend of 41% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Cabernet Franc, 21% Malbec, 8% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot works well—a study in chocolate-covered blackberry and blueberry with a powerful firmness balanced by moderate acidity.

    This is a relatively thick and dense wine, grippy in tannin and oak at first, youthful and desiring of time and air. Beyond its strength, its shows the beginnings of delicacy and grace, commingling raspberry with clove and tea.

    Shaped by the capturing of a cool-climate site and philosophy, this wine is stemmy and balanced, offering a treasure's trove of fresh earth, black tea and clove, all within a lushly layered mouthfeel. The ripeness of the fruit and acidity are entirely complementary.

    This blend of 48% Roussanne, 35% Marsanne and 17% Viognier is delightfully drinkable, viscous and fresh in steely acidity. With beautifully potent floral aromas, it shines in focused pear and apricot flavors.

    Medium ruby-purple in color, the 2014 Pinot Noir Horseshoe Bend has an herbal-laced/stemmy nose over a core of red and black cherries with hints of black soil and oolong tea. Medium-bodied, the palate delivers great vibrancy of fruit, with firm chewy tannins and lively acid supporting the red berry and earth flavors; it finishes with lingering herb and sour cherry notes.

    A blend of 48% Roussanne, 35% Marsanne and 17% Viognier, the 2015 Cuvee Luke Saralee's Vineyard has delicate nectarine, honeysuckle, anise and spiced pear scents with a hint of lightly browned toast. Light to medium-bodied, the palate is laced with pear drops and allspice flavors with a racy acid line to lend freshness to the finish.
