Wine Details

Lot 419 offers the intensity of California with the structure and perfume of great Bordeaux. Complex graphite and dark fruit aromas rise out of the glass as you give it its first swirls, followed by a rush of firmly-structured bright berry flavors and rich tannins on the palate. Classic, blockbuster mountain fruit. Definitely give this one an hour in the decanter.

Cam Confidential

Lot 419 hails from one of the finest estates on the mountain that has years of 95 to 98 point scores under their belt, and prices reaching up to well over $100 a bottle. Steep hillsides and western exposures allowed these vineyards to navigate the late rains of 2011 with nary a spot of the rot that plagued the valley floor, and as a result, the wine in the bottle is nothing short of fabulous.

Here it is 13 months after receiving this wine and I am opening the first bottle. First taste was wow, this is very interesting. The slight mineral taste, later as the wine evolved it becomes more spectacular. Definitely a 5 star rating. Thank you C.H.

This is a dense, purple wine that is concentrated to the last sip. It has power and finesse. The color is so rich that you cannot even see through the glass. I loved this wine. I generally prefer big, bold, intense Cabs, but generally let down by the lack of acidity - carpet bomb. This wine is truly awesome - perfectly balanced for it super concentrated style. Does not fall flat on any level and no harry tannins left over. I am so glad I was able to buy two cases.

Dark garnet, steady color to the rim, nearly opaque. On open, black and candied red fruit aromas, with undertones of green olive, fleeting whiffs of clove and black tea. On attack, tart and dry, black currant, cranberry, dark plum, full bodied. Moderate tannins that are firm but on their way to becoming integrated. Long, slightly sour finish. If this is from the winemaker that I suspect, I know why he released this on the spot market; it's a really good Cab, but not up to the lofty standards (and loftier prices) of the rarefied Diamond Mountain appellation's reputation. It's definitely approachable today, fruity and within reach of balance. At $29, it's more than you might expect to pay for some Cabs, but as a demonstration of the Diamond Mountain terroir, it's much cheaper than you'll find elsewhere.
