    Winemaker's Notes:

    Our Elevation 1147 Cabernet Sauvignon always represents the "best of the best" of David Arthur. The 2007 Elevation 1147 is comprised of 100 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, harvested in October of 2007. It was aged for 23 months in 94 percent new French oak barrels with a very limited production of only 541 cases.

    The color is a dark garnet with an intensely deep red core. Aromas of vanilla toffee and roasted coffee beans are followed by wild dark fruit scents of blackberry and blueberry. The texture is sweet and opulent with a full palate concentration offering flavors of dark chocolate, black licorice and cassis. The long finish carries a firm tannic structure yet is polished and fine grained in style.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Buying and cellaring this expensive wine requires an act of faith, because right now, it's not showing much in the way of sophistication. It's massive in fruit, exploding on the palate with in-your-face blackberries, black currants and cherries, not to mention caramelized oak. It's almost rude. Your only choice is to age it. All indications, however, are in its favor. Try after 2014.
