The aromas of this wine are intense with scents of rich vanilla and fresh cherries. On the palate there are hints of ripe red plump and raspberry. This wine has lingering dry finish.
93 points, Wine Enthusiast (July 1, 2013): "...Enormously focused in black currants, dark chocolate and moo shu plum sauce, it shows the hard tannins of a young Diamond Mountain Cab..."
91 points, Connoisseurs' Guide (April 2013): "...firm and sinewy with the sturdy frame and slightly austere tannins that come by way of its mountain provenance, but it is also so deep in fruit that it leaves no doubt as to its potential, and it has plenty of flesh on its considerable structural bones..."
Pair this wine with a roasted leg of lamb with pan roasted potatoes and carrots.
