2013 Diamond Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon
IInky garnet in color, this powerful wine reveals aromas of pure black cassis, followed by cocoa powder, crushed rocks and a savory umami aroma of grilled herbs. Plentiful fine-grained tannins with a dark chocolate texture and a lengthy full-bodied finish express an age-worthy wine. Still in its youth, decanting is recommended one hour prior to serving.

|Vintage Notes||Another of the artisan collection series, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Diamond Mountain District is another wine of great purity and expression. The wine has loads of intense blueberry and blackberry fruit, while licorice, graphite, spice box and pen ink are all present in this complex multi-dimensional wine. It is full-bodied, pure, rich and a tour de force in this great vintage. Drink it over the next 25-30 years..|
