    Winemaker Notes

    Red Diamond sources grapes from the best locations around the world to reveal the distinct personalities of outstanding varietals. This Spanish Red Blend offers aromas of blackberries and hints of dark chocolate. On the palate, bold flavors of black fruit meld with oak and ends with a silky smooth finish.

    Blend: 85% Tempranillo, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Carignan

    Red Diamond, Washington
    Red Diamond Winemaker Laura Sorge Winery Image
    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.

    California is a winemaking colossus; by itself it is the fourth largest producer in the world. Red wine accounts for 56% of the total by volume, and red grapes 63% of total acres planted. In addition, a number of California red wines are heralded as being among the most prestigious and sought-after wines in the world.

    While the state’s incredibly diverse geography, soils and microclimates allow for a wide array of styles, the key factor unifying California red wine is the abundance of sunshine and a long, consistent growing season. This leads to well-developed fruit marked both by impressive ripeness and balancing acidity.

    The state’s most famous red wine region, of course, is Napa Valley, where Cabernet Sauvignon reigns as king. But California boasts a wealth of other impressive appellations. The much larger and climatically varied Sonoma County also produces world class California Cabernet, along with wonderful examples of California Pinot Noir and Zinfandel.

    Fine versions of Cabernet and Zinfandel hail from Paso Robles as well, which is also gaining fame with Rhone varietals like Syrah and Grenache. As for Pinot Noir, terrific examples can be found from AVA’s such as Anderson Valley, Carneros, Santa Lucia Highlands and Sta. Rita Hills. Wineries in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties are making wonderful Syrahs, and the Sierra Foothill appellations are proving to be an experimental hotbed, with Italian and Spanish varietals employed to great effect.

    This of course is a mere sketch. The subject of California red wine is as deep and broad as an ocean, and absolutely a joy to explore!
