2005 Diamond Mountain Cabernet
Deep, dark, and intense purple color. Brooding nose of tight fruit opens slowly to show pretty French oak, toasty mocha, and high-toned blueberry fruit. Opulent mid-palate showcases toasty oak and a symphony of classic Napa currant and cassis flavors. Succulent, juicy, ripe, and gorgeous with outstanding depth, this wine has a 30-second finish that will continue to flesh out as she ages. This elegant wine can be enjoyed now (versus her sister wine, Lot 33 Spring Mountain Cabernet, which is still very tight) with a great big steak or will age gracefully for another 10 to 15 years. Combination of 75% new and 25% one-year-old French oak.
Style: Full, Bold
