THE WINE

Our most gripping and complex Cabernet, the Diamond Mountain has come to define our portfolio, reflective of the depth and concentration that comes from this high elevation, small, premier appellation, yielding a wine that is truly intended for aging.

SOURCING

VINEYARD NOTES

High above the fog line, the unique mountain vineyard sites provide a variety of nutrient-rich soils, superior exposure to sunlight and evening cooling.

VARIETAL COMPOSITION

100% Cabernet Sauvignon

VINTAGE NOTES

Ideal conditions from beginning to end, oering ideal results throughout. Foggy and cool mornings with minimal heat spikes.

WINEMAKING NOTES

Fermented in small 4-6 ton open top fermenters, with thrice daily pump overs for cap management. Upon finishing fermentation the wine is allowed to rest on its skins for up to a month. Aged in 80% new French oak for 18 months.

WINEMAKER

TASTING NOTES

Marion berry, blueberry, elderberry, with cassis, dried lavender, and violet. Touches of sage with a striking mineral-driven backbone, backed by fleshy acidity, and powerful tannins.
