Winemaker's Notes

The 2006 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 Sauvignon will excite the palate today or age gracefully for 7-10 years.

Critical Acclaim

"A good, rich and complex Bordeaux blend, with ripe fruit and plenty of smoky new oak, but also very tannic. The flavors are classic Napa, of blackberries, black currants, sour black cherries, tobacco and cedar. Should develop through 2012. "
91 Points

"Tart fruit flavors of blackberries and blueberries give this cabernet a frisky feel. The fruit is clean while the tannins carry a touch of bitterness and funk, which should develop into complexity as the wine ages."
90 Points

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

(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.
