RATINGS

100Jeb Dunnuck

Just incredibly complex, layered, and nuanced aromatically, the palate doesn't drop a beat and is full-bodied, incredibly concentrated, powerful, yet also seamless and weightless.

98+ The Wine Advocate

Full-bodied, the palate is charged with wonderful black and blue fruit energy, framed with soft, velvety tannins and finishing long with some mineral sparks coming through.

92-95Vinous / IWC

...ample frame effortlessly with generous dark blue/purplish fruit, spice, lavender and licorice overtones.

REGION

United States, California, Napa Valley, Diamond Mountain

Diamond Mountain District AVA is in the Mayacamas Mountains at the northwestern end of Napa Valley. The appellation is relatively high and the entire district is more than 400 feet above sea level. Some vineyards are as high as 2,200 feet above sea level. Because of their altitude, Diamond Mountain vineyards experience warmer days but colder nights than vineyards on the valley floor. Once volcanic soil, the terrain in the appellation has over time become less fertile, making grape growing particularly challenging. Nevertheless the district has attracted wine producers for more than a century. There are 500 vineyard acres out of a total of 5,000 acres. Among the highly regarded wineries here are Lokoya Winery, Diamond Creek Vineyards and Schramsberg Vineyards. Diamond Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc are generally firmly structured, rich and quite tannic. Chardonnay is full-bodied with apple and peach aromas and firm acidity.

TYPE

Red Wine, Cabernet Sauvignon

One of the most widely grown grape varieties, it can be found in nearly every wine growing region. A cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. It’s a hardy vine that produces a full-bodied wine with high tannins and great aging potential.
