Smith Devereux Cabernet 2015 | Howell & Diamond Mountain Awesomeness
Smith Devereux Cabernet 2015 is the perfect balance of sustainably farmed vineyards from Napa Valley’s famed Howell and Diamond Mountains. While the cool morning fog, powerful afternoon sun, and diverse cross-valley soils lead to a lush wine with structured tannins and concentrated flavors. Black cherry, currant, caramel, firm tannins, cocoa, plum, mocha, and toasty vanilla. Of course, our natural winemaking techniques and aging in French oak complete this rich, world-class Cabernet. Smith Devereux Cabernet 2015 is drinkable immediately and will age with grace.
Our Smith Devereux Cabernet 2015 is sustainably farmed in Napa’s famed St. Helena AVA. Known for hot days, cool evening breezes, and foggy mornings. Hence the region has the ideal soil for making our rich, silky cabernet. While this limited-production wine has the power and structure of an iconic Napa Valley Cabernet. Yet is unique in its grace and subtlety. Aged in French oak, our world-class cab is drinkable immediately. And becoming even more complex and nuanced over time.
Smith Devereux Wines
Smith Devereux (formerly J.W. Thomas Wines) utilizes over 60 years of family winemaking experience to produce sustainably farmed, limited production wines.
So starting with a strong belief in every bottle of wine telling a story. While notably, Smith Devereux farms only the highest quality grapes to create their award-winning portfolio of wines. Their first wine, Verse & Chorus was selected by Whole Foods as a Top 10 Holiday Pick. And Wine Club Selection and won Best in Class and a Gold Medal at the West Coast Wine Competition.
Music & Wine
Our story began, as many great stories do, with music and wine. It was a serendipitous interview. First, a farmer with some of Napa Valley’s best grapes. Next, a seemingly impossible puzzle that brought us together. So, weeks after meeting we shook hands backstage at the Greek Theater in Berkeley, CA and took on the deal that would lead us into a life-long friendship, the founding of a winery, and a plan to conquer the world. Well… the wine world. True world domination may actually be outside of our skill set.
First, blending our backgrounds in music and wine. Then pairing them with partner John Anthony Truchard’s wine industry and farming expertise. And finally, forming Smith Devereux. We are driven by the simple goal of making world-class wines at modest prices.
