“As for the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Diamond Mountain, this is a relatively small cuvée of 315 cases of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Aged 22 months in 70% new French oak, this dense ruby/purple wine emerges from the red aiken soils of Diamond Mountain. It offers up notes of melted licorice, blueberry liqueur, crème de cassis, charcoal and Christmas fruitcake. Full-bodied and layered, it’s a terrific example of this great vintage for Bordeaux varieties in Napa.”
“2013 was an incredible vintage,” says Winemaker Trevor Durling. “Our 2013 Diamond Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon is intensely expressive of bold, mountain-grown fruit that benefited from this long hang-time vintage.” Heady aromas of cassis, blackberry, black licorice and mountain sage lead to expansive and richly textured flavors.
