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.
"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.
"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."
