Cabernet Sauvignon Diamond Mountain, Napa Valley

Cabernet Sauvignon Diamond Mountain, Napa Valley Wine Details

Description: “This Cabernet Sauvignon shows the characteristic cherry fruit so typical of the volcanic soils of Diamond Mountain. The wine offers wonderful aromas and flavors of black cherry, dark chocolate and ripe raspberry with slight Asian spice notes. It has supple tannins and depth of fruit marked by lush fruit flavors. There is plenty of mountain fruit intensity that carries through to a mouthwatering finish.” Chris Carpenter, Winemaker

Varietal Definition
Cabernet Sauvignon:
Cabernet Sauvignon is the most widely planted and significant among the five dominant varieties in France’s Bordeaux region, as well as the most successful red wine produced in California. Though it was thought to be an ancient variety, recent genetic studies at U.C. Davis have determined that Cabernet Sauvignon is actually the hybrid offspring of Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Franc. Cabernet Sauvignon berries are small with black, thick and very tough skin. This toughness makes the grapes fairly resistant to disease and spoilage and able to withstand some autumn rains with little or no damage. It is a mid to late season ripener. These growth characteristics, along with its flavor appeal have made Cabernet Sauvignon one of the most popular red wine varieties worldwide.
One of the older varieties. Clean, fruity, delicious wine, best with a sweet finish. A very popular wine. The fresh juice is reminiscent of pineapple.
