J. Davies Cabernet Sauvignon is made by Schramsberg, one of California’s most venerable and storied producers. Schramsberg was founded in the mid-19th century by Jacob Schram, a German immigrant whose dream was to make wine in California. By 1876 his wines were being shipped throughout the country and winning awards. The property changed hands several times in the 20th century, and was finally purchased in 1965 by Jack and Jamie Davies, a couple determined to produce a sparkling wine that would compete with the best French Champagnes. They succeeded in making such excellent sparkling wine that Schrambserg became the official sparkling wine of the Nixon administration and has been served in the White House ever since. The J. Davies Cab is a Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, and Petit Verdot. It is made in very limited quantities and with great care as a tribute to Jack and Jamie Davies. Their son Hugh remains the president and CEO of the company.
