About Our Wine

Winemaker – Dave Phinney

In an effort to bring out the best in the grapes we enlisted Dave Phinney of Orin Swift fame. He is well known for big, full bodied wines. Dave has been the winemaker since Cavus’ first vintage in 2004.

Our Vineyard Manager – Jim Barbour

Jim is one of the best viticulturists in the Napa Valley. We are fortunate to have him on the team. His own Cabernet Sauvignon is wonderful and a rare treat.
