Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Cabernet from Diamond Mountain opens with a fragrant pomegranate and plum bouquet with hints of blackberry and oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and very easy to drink. The flavor profile is a complex blend of black currant and nicely integrated smoky oak. We also detected hints of black cherry and cola. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins drift away nicely. The panel suggested pairing this tasty Cab with prime rib or a roasted leg of lamb. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Richly perfumed aromas of blueberry and blackberry compote combine with mocha, anise, and clove. The palate is complex, fruitful, and refined. Boysenberry and black cherry mingle with black tea, tobacco and sweet spice. The flavors are seamlessly integrated with fine grain tannins, which sustain a long and luxurious finish.

Organic status: not organic
