Reviews & Accolades

Wine Enthusiast — 94

This is a 100% varietal wine made by sought-after winemaking consultant Thomas Rivers Brown. It delivers a powerful package of plum and dark chocolate. Earthy tobacco and sage meld with grippy, youthful tannins to showcase a well-structured offering. Enjoy 2024–2029.

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is a gorgeous, exotic beauty. Super-ripe red cherry, plum jam, mocha, new leather, licorice and pomegranate abound. Although not exactly a wine of site, the 2016 is flat out delicious and will be impossible to resist, even in its youth. Readers should expect a heady, flamboyant style

The base cuvée is the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon and it too comes all from the Diamond Mountain AVA, which in is the northwestern part of the valley. Aged in 80% new oak, it gives up beautifully classic notes of red and black fruits, dried earth, spice box, and savory herbs. It’s classic Diamond Mountain on the palate and is more supple, rounded, and sexy, with a layered, full-bodied style. Undeniably charming and delicious, it’s going to keep for 10-12 years.
