"Made of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 19 months in 66% new French oak, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Diamond Mountain is deep garnet-purple colored and sings of crushed blackcurrants and blueberries with hints of sautéed herbs, beef dripping, black olives and tilled soil. The palate is medium to full-bodied, firm and chewy with loads of dark fruits and earthy layers and an herbal lift to the finish. 300 cases produced." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate
Notably deep in color, with aromas and flavors of intense black fruit led by black cherry, blackberries and wild mountain boysenberry. Elegant, polished tannins with a silky, full mouthfeel. Sweet oak joins sweet tobacco, notes of bitter dark chocolate and contrasting mocha. Balanced and well structured with a lingering finish and hints of oak spice.
