This elegantly balanced wine is deep and dark with a purple hue. Aromas of ripe cassis and black currant combine seamlessly with sweet notes of spice. The palate is ripe and soft, with pronounced cherry liquor, lush tannin's and sweet, subtle oak. Black currant builds on the finish.

Wine Spectator: 93
Juicy and focused, featuring red and black currant fruit, entwined with licorice, bramble and sweet tobacco notes. Subtle singed juniper and sassafras details chime through the background. Best from 2021 through 2032.
Wine Advocate: 93
Composed of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot and 8% Merlot, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Diamond Selection has a deep garnet color, sashaying out of the glass with flirtatious scents of crème de cassis, kirsch, Black Forest cake and cinnamon stick plus suggestions of cigar box, fragrant soil and dried rose petals. Full-bodied, rich and decadently spicy in the mouth, it coats the palate with black fruit preserves and plush tannins, finishing long and perfumed.
James Suckling: 92
This has a very fresh array of vibrant, ripe-fruit aromas with a sense of sleek and plush tannin and a silky textural feel. A vibrant, elegant and plush array of fine, smooth tannins deliver intense and focused, dark-berry flavors at the finish. Drink or hold.
