Winemaker's Tasting Note
“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. These complex notes come from Cabernet Sauvignon grown in the heart of our estate vineyard that looks out toward Mount St. Helena, while aging in new French oak barrels added hints of caramel, allspice and cardamom. From the full, plush entry to the persistent, dark-fruit finish, the wine is beautifully balanced and supported by integrated tannins that promise cellar worthiness.
