In 1975, Edward Wallis fell in love with the 85 acre property in Calistoga on Diamond Mountain Road, but it wasn't until 1997 that his interest turned to wine. He and his wife Marilyn planted 10 acres of vines, of predominately of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Every detail was meticulously thought out and in turn, captured the interest of Napa Valley's top winemakers.

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon bursts with intense black and red cherries, boysenberries and warm cassis notes, plus wafts of cedar, pencil lead, wild sage and truffles. The palate is medium to full-bodied with tightly knit, fine-grained tannins and lovely freshness supporting the muscular fruit, finishing long and minerally.
This is the Wallis Family‚Äôs hotrod Cabernet from Diamond Mountain and it definitely has the horsepower for the role. Rich and dense, with impressive depth, this is a darkly fruited Cabernet that has that rare combination of power and elegance. Notes of ripe cassis and black fruits dominate, with a touch of wood spice and ample tannin for the long haul, though drinking exceptionally well at this young stage. A Platinum Award winner at the 2019 Sommelier Challenge International Wine & Spirits Competition.
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Seraphim has really come along nicely since I tasted it last year. The tannins have softened considerably, which in turn allows the fruit to come through. This is an unusually rich, jammy style for Diamond Mountain, and while it would be nice to see a greater sense of place, there is no denying the wine’s beauty. An exotic mélange of raspberry jam, white chocolate, spice and new oak builds as this flamboyant, unapologetically opulent wine shows off its voluptuous curves and inviting personality.
A 100% varietal wine made by Thomas Rivers Brown, this is abundant in baked plum, cassis and dark currant. Firm tannins wrap around the integrated oak and secondary seasonings of black pepper, licorice and pepper, leaving a fresh, floral finish to ponder. Enjoy 2021–2026.
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Wallis Denali Estate Vineyard reveals alluring scents of fruitcake, baked blackberries and crème de cassis, plus suggestions of eucalyptus, espresso, black olives and crushed rocks. Medium to full-bodied, it delivers tons of savory layers and beautiful harmony in the mouth, with a firm, fine-grained texture and refreshing lift on the finish.
