2017 Vintage

2017 Wallis Denali Estate Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine Review Online — 95

The extraction and richness in Napa Valley Cabernet is what made the valley famous, and this wine has both in spades. Brilliant aromas of blackberry and red currant combined with beautiful texture and balance make this a Cabernet to savor now or lay down in a proper cellar for another five to ten years. Platinum Award winner at the 2020 Critics Challenge International Wine & Spirits Competition.

2017 Wallis Diamond Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

Robert Parker — 94

The famed Diamond Mountain District has a worthy representative in this bottling, showing black and blue fruit, fall spice and earthy notes that ride a rustic tannin profile through a long finish that already shows integration. As the rusticity loosens and fades into elegance, this will taste better and better. That said, it would be great now with well marbled beef or game. A Platinum Award Winner at the 2020 San Diego International Wine & Spirits Challenge.

The Diamond Mountain District is one of the most coveted sites for Cabernet Sauvignon in California. There is a reason for that, and it is in evidence here. This wine shows extraordinary depth and concentration, and is richly layered and complex, with aromas of blackberry, cassis and spice. The balance is exquisite and the finish dazzling and long. Platinum Award win.

Beverage Tasting Inst. — 94

Violet color. Inviting aromas and flavors of crusty dark berry tart, chocolate craisin and orange peel, waxy honeycomb, and hint of leather with a supple, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium-full body and an effortless, involved, long finish manifesting notes of blueberries, violet and orange blossom water, and roasted pecans with chewy, drying tannins and moderate oak flavor. A rich and chewy Napa Cabernet that is drinking with vigor and poise now, yet promises greater rewards with cellaring

Sommeliers Choice Awards — 95 Gold

Excellent showcase of Diamond Mountain. Over priced but that is what elite winemakers cost. Age this wine for at least 5 years, and decant to showcase the depth and complexity this wine has to offer.
