Robert Parker, Jr's Wine Advocate:  "The flagship wine, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Elevation 1147, is all Cabernet Sauvignon compared to the Old Vine, which is 88% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Petit Verdot, and the Three Acre that is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with 2% Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. This is pedal-to-the-metal, seriously endowed, full-throttle Cabernet Sauvignon from Pritchard Hill. Chocolate, crème de cassis, incense, graphite and earth make for a complex, multidimensional set of aromatics. Full-bodied, round, juicy and, like so many 2014s, already showing complexity and easy appeal. This full-bodied, layered and rich Cabernet Sauvignon should drink well for another 20-25 years, but there is no reason to defer gratification.  Drink date:  2016-2042."  Dec 2016

One of the pioneers of Pritchard Hill, David Arthur Vineyards has been turning out great wines for several decades or more. "

Antonio Galloni's Vinous: "The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Elevation 1147 is subtle, nuanced and polished. Silky tannins give the 2014 much of its supple, inviting personality. The Elevation is the most accessible of the 2014 Cabernets. In 2014, the Elevation has a bit more density than normal, but the style is one of restraint, as is the case with all of the wines here. Sweet red cherry, tobacco, spice and leather add aromatic intrigue, while the 100% new French oak adds mid palate sweetness and depth.  Drinking window:  201902034." Dec 2016

James Suckling:  "Aromas of tar, blackcurrants and blackberries follow through to a full body with tight and velvety tannins and a pretty fruit and walnut undertone on the finish. Stone/slate highlights, too. Very polished and well defined. Give it three to four years to soften. Another red from here for the cellar." Jan 2017

Winery:
" Elevation 1147 Every year we have the opportunity to take our best of the best grapes and let them stand by themselves, we call this Elevation 1147. Elevation 1147 is always 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and a core percentage comes from the same block each year. The style of this wine is that of no other from David Arthur in that the structure is massive and full palate. The name Elevation 1147 comes from our location high atop Pritchard Hill.

Our 2014 Elevation 1147 has an intensely deep ruby color with a violet rim that offers an immense array of aromas from wild blackberry, cassis, followed by licorice candy, brown sugar notes, cocoa nibs and hints of black tea as well as garrigue of sage-mint. The palate is rich, yet soft and plush offering polished tannins that are broad and chewy carrying into a long finish with flavors of blackberry, dark cherry and light baking spices. Best from 2017 to 2037."
