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.
A Beautiful High Elevation Wine
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.
Good cab, good price for Diamond Mtn
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.
