2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve - Diamond Mountain - Napa Valley
95 points CELLAR SELECTION (Wine Enthusiast Magazine)
"At more than six years of age, this wine is as fresh and fruity as if it were made yesterday, with blackberry, cherry and blueberry jam, currant and mocha flavors, enriched with toasty, caramelized oak. The tannins are strong, yet smooth and refined. The wine is so gorgeous right out of the bottle, you can drink it now, but try giving it six more years to really show its stuff." (by Steve Heimoff)

2007 Cabernet Sauvignon - Diamond Mountain - Napa Valley
93 points CELLAR SELECTION (Wine Enthusiast Magazine)
"Even though this Cab is more than six years old, it screams “Age me more.” Tannins are both hard-edged and ripe. The acidity is bracing, and there’s a minerality that’s like a lick of granite. Then there’s the fruity essence, which is extraordinarily ripe in blackberries, cherries and savory orange zest. That doesn’t even begin to describe the toasty oak. Just at the beginning of a long life, the wine will carry well into the 2020s." (by Steve Heimoff)
