Cavus is a family-run vineyard situated on a hillside in the Stag’s Leap appellation of Napa. A region is famous for producing rich, robust Cabernet Sauvignons. The first release was the 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon.
Darryl has always been a wine enthusiast. His passion for sharing things he loves was a catalyst for starting the vineyard. He also wanted the vineyard name to have personal meaning.
Darryl 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 dug “a cave” that night to get out of the wind and cold after walking all day. As good fortune would have it they were rescued 24 hours later, tired and thankful. So Cavus, The Cave is a personal tribute to friends, good fortune and life.
The experience reinforced his philosophy on drinking good wine: why wait for a “special occasion”? Celebrate life each day and always drink good wine.
