2006 DM: Wine Enthusiast

A superior Cabernet that shows, first and foremost, Diamond Mountain’s famous tannins. They make the mouthfeel a little hard, but the wine is so rich in blackberries and plums, you hardly notice. Beautiful now, with decanting, and should develop for

2008 DM: Robert Parker

The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Diamond Mountain reveals a similar, slightly deeper ruby/purple color along with abundant notes of creme de cassis, graphite, crushed rocks and spice. Full-bodied and rich, this outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon is drinking well now yet should age

2008 DM: Stephen Tanzer

Good deep red. Slightly high-toned aromas of cherry liqueur, licorice, tar and loam, along with a cooler minty nuance. Then supple and fresh in the mouth, with floral red fruit flavors enlivened by integrated acidity. The dusty tannins are nicely

2008 DM: Wine Enthusiast

Rich, elaborate and layered. If this Cab were a fabric, it would be suede. Shows the tannins and minerals of Diamond Mountain, with potent flavors of blackberries, cherries, currants, cola, anise and sweet smoky oak. The finish is wonderfully dry,

2009 DM: Stephen Tanzer

Good ruby-red. Liqueur-like, even exotic, on the nose, but not yet differentiated. Large-scaled, broad and primary, with darker fruit flavors than the 2008 version. This distinctly unformed wine is all baby fat today. A powerful and head-spinning cabernet with chewy,

The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon flows with black cherries, plums, spices, tar and licorice. It possesses striking inner perfume and beautifully expressive fruit in a style that brings tons of elegance to Diamond Mountain. Layers of flavor build towards the impressive,

A great follow-up to the winery’s 2008, this continues a roll of classy Diamond Mountain-based Cabs from Wallis Family. It’s dry, softly tannic and likeable for its depth of blackberry, cherry, currant and cedar flavors. This straddles the line between

2010 DM: Virginie Boone

Tough and hard, this is a Cabernet that tastes old fashioned with its dry, tannic astringency. It certainly marches to a different beat, even for the Diamond Mountain District that’s known for difficult tannins. Will it age? There’s a solid

2010 DM: Antonio Galloni

The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon screams Diamond Mountain in its dark fruit, tar, spices, smoke and incense. Elements of exotic wildness are woven throughout this powerful, intense, tannic wine. A radiant finish supported by firm tannins leaves a lasting impression. The
