2012 Rainin Vineyard Diamond Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon
95 Points - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
The Rainin Vineyard, founded in 1998 by the Rainin family, is a bucolic, eight acre site located on the rugged volcanic slopes of Diamond Mountain. The vines are nestled amongst majestic pine forests and redwood groves.
This wine opens with aromas of juniper, crushed violet and dried fig. The palate is lush with purple fruit, plum and a rich tannin structure. Muscular and opulent, the flavors cascade through the long finish.
