Imagine a dusty white moonscape, covered in warm light, on the side of a mountain and you'll get a sense of the volcanic aftermath that is Diamond Mountain. That warmth of terroir shows in the 2008 Diamond Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon in the form of boysenberry aromatics, a touch of mint, rich cocoa and luxurious mouth-filling tannins.
Description

Details

WE 94 WA 92 IWC 91 Pts - According to Wine Enthusiast - Made in the Lokoya style, which is darkly colored, full bodied, tannic and dense in mountain fruit. A spicy oak tone joins with massive blackberry, cassis and violet flavors to make this wine delicious from the start. It’s very tannic and needs a great deal of time. Begin to enjoy this wine in 2016, and it should go far longer than that. Cellar Selection!

 

According to Robert Parker - The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Diamond Mountain, which comes largely from the Reverie Vineyard, is the softest of this quartet and thus will show best over the near term. It exhibits a dark ruby/purple color along with notes of berry fruit, camphor, roasted herbs and crushed rocks, an elegant, medium to full-bodied style, silky tannins and an endearing opulence as well as freshness. It should drink well for 10-15 years.

 

According to International Wine Cellar - Dark red. Expressive aromas of plum, redcurrant, tobacco and minerals, with a strong black cherry quality emerging with air. Ripe and pliant but firm, with intense dark berry and licorice flavors framed by harmonious acidity. Offers lovely sweetness with restraint. Very suave and fine-grained on the horizontal finish. 14.6% ABV. Rated 90+
