Winemaker's Notes

The 2004 Diamond Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of select distinctive vineyards, all within the Diamond Mountain District AVA. The lots are specifically chosen for their unique combination of concentration, bright fruit aromas and elegance. This wine is loaded with cassis, berries and violets on the nose and sweet, supple tannins on the palate. Softer and more elegant in style than the vineyard designated wines, this impressive Cabernet will excite the palate today or age gracefully for 10+years.

Varietal Make-up: 88% Cabernet Sauvignon 9% Merlot 3% Cabernet Franc

"Those with patience to wait for it to develop will be rewarded with a dynamic red. Its response to air gives a clue to how the rich, soil-driven tannins will evolve towards silkiness, how the youthful, black fruit intensity will yield to a sleek, lusty juice. If you open it now, decant the bottle several hours before dinner, to serve with grilled lamb tenderloin."

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity.
