2006 Vintage

2006 Wallis Little Sister Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine Enthusiast — 90

This is a kind of junior Cab to the winery’s regular Diamond Mountain bottling, whose 2006 was spectacular. The Little Sister is similarly rich and oaky, with broad flavors of blackberries and currants. It’s very tannic, and should improve over the next 2-4 years.

With aromas of blackberry, cassis, tobacco spice and smoked meat, this well-balanced wine has ripe fruit flavors of cassis and black fruit, with a firm tannic finish.

2006 Wallis Diamond Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine Enthusiast — 92

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 six years.
