Winemaker's Notes:

Red Diamond sources grapes from the best locations around the world toreveal the distinct personalities of outstanding varietals. Benefiting from California's warm climate and long growing season, our Cabernet Sauvignon opens with aromas of black fruits and subtle notes of oak. Flavors of creamycherry and black coffee lead to a soft and supple finish.

Tomato-based sauces, such as Bolognese Puttanesca sauce, are a great match for Cabernet Sauvignon - the sharp flavors of the tomatoes balances the acidity of the wine. Chinese cuisine such as peking duck, mu shu pork, or braised soy pork have high fat levels and slightly sweet hoisin or soy flavors that bring out the fruit flavors in the wine. Rich and intensely flavored foods soften the tannins of Cab. Go with grilled meats or braised dishes like lamb shanks or pot roast. Also a great match for strongly flavored cheeses.

About Red Diamond:

Red Diamond is located at the edge of Columbia River gorge in eastern Washington State. The Red Diamond phenomenon began in 2003 when their first wine, a Merlot, was released to limited markets, targeting restaurants only. The response was immediate: 25,000 cases were sold within the year.

Since then, Red Diamond has released three additional wines: Chardonnay, Cabernet and Shiraz. Each wine exhibits enticing flavors truly representative of the grape varietal.
