Diamond Terrace Vineyards

Diamond Terrace Vineyards In 1998 we realized our dream of owning a high quality vineyard by purchasing a 16-acre parcel on Diamond Mountain near the town of Calistoga. We moved our family of six onto the property and determined that Diamond Terrace was the perfect name for our new home. The steeply terraced 5-acre vineyard was planted in 1984 to Cabernet Sauvignon. More vines were added in 1992. We knew right off the bat this vineyard could produce a big, elegant, and age worthy Mountain Cabernet, our favorite kind of wine! So, in 1999 we began producing a limited quantity of Cabernet Sauvignon that truly reflects the unique Diamond Mountain District quality. We are excited to announce that we have recently paired up with Thomas Brown, former Turley assistant winemaker, who will craft our distinctive Diamond Mountain wine. He will also be overseeing our newest project, a Cabernet from our family’s “Eagle Summit Vineyard” on Howell Mountain.

  Diamond Terrace
The 2002 Diamond Terrace is dark ruby in color with a solid tannin structure and a load of flavor. With aromas of blackberry, cocoa, root beer and sweet smoky oak, this is a big but approachable mountain cabernet. The grapes for this mountain cabernet were picked at approximately 25.0 brix of sugar, then destemmed and crushed into 5-ton open top tanks. After completion of primary fermentation the wine was drained, skins pressed, and a malolactic starter was added. The wine was barrel aged 22 months prior to bottling in August of 2004.
