The 2005 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 will excite the palate today or age gracefully for 10+years.

Wine EnthusiastThe winery's basic Cab, with no vineyard designation, shares the qualities of the more expensive bottlings. It's dry and tannic and ultraconcentrated in varietal character, with explosive cassis, cherry and new oak flavors. Impresses now for its luxurious mouthfeel, and should develop through 2013.

Wine SpectatorIntense and complex, with earthy berry and currant flavors, shaded by mint and bay leaf. Turns dry and austere on the finish, with a pleasant earthy aftertaste. Needs cellar time. Best from 2010 through 2016. 2,500 cases made.
