This Cabernet Sauvignon is packed with intense blackberry character layered with hints of dark chocolate, herbs, and spices.
Situated high above the valley floor on a steep northern face of the Mayacamas Mountains near Calistoga, Diamond Mountain Ranch is one of the most interesting vineyard properties in this renowned winegrowing region. Here, austere soils and dry farming stress the vines and low vigor volcanic soils provide minimal nutrition. The result is small, intensely concentrated fruit clusters that make deeply pigmented, assertive wines that are rich in body and tannin: truly world-class wines.
An ideal vintage, 2013 began early and progressed with consistent, even temperatures throughout the summer. Grapes were harvested at the peak of ripeness, displaying concentrated flavors and bold varietal character.
