Wine Spectator | Rating: 91Rich and extracted, with dark berry, fresh earth, graphite and anise notes. Though the tannins are pebbly and chewy, there's plenty here to sink your teeth into now and for the next decade. Drink now through 2031. 1,498 cases made.Author: James Laube
Wine Advocate | Rating: 97The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Diamond Mountain is a blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Merlot. Opaque purple, it offers up beautiful notes of chocolate, espresso, blackberry and cassis. The wine hits the palate with a gush of deliciously pure, unctuously textured fruit and offers up full body, a multi-layered mouthfeel, and a long, long finish, nearly disguising some serious structure and tannin. This is a gorgeous, classic Diamond Mountain wine to drink over the next 25-30+ years.Author: Robert Parker
