Concentrated black cherry, blackberry, briar and toasty oak flavors mingle with subtle mountain minerality.
The Diamond Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon comes from vineyards located in the Mayacamas Mountain Range west of Napa Valley near Calistoga. The steep volcanic hillsides are known for producing deeply concentrated, small-berry fruit. At an elevation approaching nearly 1,700 feet, these vineyards experience brilliant sunshine without the heat of the valley floor, resulting in fruit that is deep in color and perfectly ripened with complex character.
Grapes for our Diamond Mountain Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon were hand-harvested, de-stemmed and fermented in stainless steel tanks for seven to ten days with regular pumpovers to extract color and flavor.
