Vintage 2013
Wine Type Red
Varietal Cabernet Sauvignon
Region Napa Valley
Winemaker Harry Hansen
Diamond Mountain District se encuentra en la Cordillera de Mayacamas, al oeste del Valle de Napa, cerca de Calistoga. A una altura aproximada de 1.700 pies, los viñedos se plantan en empinadas laderas volcánicas. Como resultado, son conocidos por su rica y profundamente concentrada fruta. Tintado y complejo con un acabado persistente, este Cabernet Sauvignon está repleto de intensos caracteres de zarzamora con toques de chocolate negro, hierbas y especias.
 

Nota del enólogo

Las uvas para nuestro Diamond Mountain Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon fueron cosechadas a mano, despalilladas y fermentadas en tanques de acero inoxidable entre siete y diez días, con un remontado sistemático para extraer el color y el sabor. El concentrado sabor a cerezas negras, arándanos, brezos y roble tostado, se combina con una sutil mineralidad de montaña. Disfrútela con un lomo asado, un filete miñón o un costillar de cordero.

Tasting Notes

An exceptional wine from a stunning vineyard, our 2013 Sleeping Lady Cabernet Sauvignon highlights the beauty and complexity of this dynamic site. Very few vineyards can deliver quite like Sleeping Lady says Director of Winemaking Harry Hansen.  In this wine, we get beautiful fruit purity, ripe tannins and aromatic complexity, all straight from the vineyard. Rich and opulent, the wine delivers layers of brambly black fruits and blueberries, graced by violets, graphite, and chocolaty tannins. The flavors will develop nicely over the years, which make this an excellent wine to lay down. 

Vineyard Notes

The contour of a Sleeping Lady presides over this pristine vineyard, which sits up against the Mayacamas Mountains on the west bench of Yountville. The dramatic beauty of the vineyard comes from its immaculate care and attention to detail, noticeable from the clean vineyard floor to the open architecture of the vines, where perfect clusters dangle neatly on display. Careful leafing and crop management provide the ideal mixture of sun and shade for the fruit. The soils are deep, gravelly and well drained, offering distinctive graphite notes to the concentrated dark fruit flavors.
