NAPA FIRE UPDATE — CAVUS WINERY BURNED DOWN! They need your help!

My friends Darryl and Laurel Browman at Cavus were very unfortunate and lost their home and winery in the Napa fire. These nice folks have worked so hard to create this venture. You can help them rebuild by supporting their winery and acquiring some very fine wine for yourself as well.

Cavus (Cave), The Cave is a personal tribute to friends, good fortune and life. Darryl (winery owner) and two friends were skiing in Argentina when they took a wrong turn and found themselves on the backside of the mountain with no way out. They built “a cave” and the three friends settled in for the night not knowing what the future would bring. As good fortune would have it they were rescued 24 hours later, tired, thankful and full of joy.  The experience reinforced their philosophy on drinking good wine: why wait for a “special occasion”? Celebrate life each day and “always drink good wine.”

Now they need our help again, this time it is a lit more dire, as everything was whipped out during this awful fire night. I am doing my share but I cannot cary the load alone, so I am asking for you help too!

For those not familiar with the venture, the wines are made by ace Dave Phinney.

Dave Phinney Notes: “The wine opens with ripe cherry and hints of cinnamon, and brown sugar. A lush dark plum and blackcurrant entry gives way to a mid-palate of roasted coffee and a touch of baking chocolate. It finishes with lingering yet subtle flavors of white chocolate and vanilla. Overall, the 2014 Cavus is well balanced with a decadent richness.”

Robert Parker: “The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc with the same barrel aging. This exhibits slightly more concentration and depth, but perhaps it’s just more sexy and open-knit compared to the 2013. Deep blackcurrant fruit intermixed with licorice, graphite and some underlying soil tones are all present in this medium to full-bodied wine to drink over the next 15 or so years.”
