David Arthur's Cabernet Elevation 1147 is the ultimate expression of Cabernet Sauvignon from the estate's vineyard, situated, as the name suggests, at good altitude, which produces single-varietal Cabernet Sauvignon of power and finesse, structure and elegance, extraction and grace.

"It boasts stunning depth and power, but very much in the context of the house style, which is to say the Elevation 1147 remains a wine of exquisite elegance and finesse. This dazzling Cabernet Sauvignon caresses every corner of the palate with layers of beautifully delineated fruit. The 2010 is an exceptionally polished wine loaded with potential.

"I was deeply impressed with the wines I tasted at David Arthur this year. Winemaker Nile Zacherle has done a brilliant job with these new and upcoming releases. The David Arthur style is all about richness without excess heaviness. One of the pioneers of Pritchard Hill, David Arthur Vineyards has been turning out great wines for several decades or more.” Robert Parker
