Ships in 3-5 business days.

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

Blend: 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot

Wine Spectator: 93
Pure and rich, focused on a supple core of licorice, dark berry,light cedar, fresh earth and savory herb flavors, ending with a long, smooth finish that keeps repeating the core fruit themes. Drink now through 2033.
Wine Advocate: 90
The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Diamond Selection is a blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot. (I don’t believe the word “Diamond” in the title has anything to do with Diamond Mountain.) Supple textured and slightly softer than the Atlas Peak, with less obvious minerality but with more juicy blackcurrant and blackberry fruit, judiciously dosed with some attractive toasty oak, the wine is full-bodied, rather round, opulent, pleasurable and satisfying. The softness of the tannin and lush fruit suggest drinking it now and over the next 10-12 years.
Decanter: 90
A flamboyant nose redolent of rich black cherries in kirsch, complemented by vanilla on the palate. A satisfying palate with caressing tannins. This is a Cab with attitude.
Wine Enthusiast: 93
Blended with 6% Petit Verdot, this wine is treated as a reserve-tier bottling. It delivers high-toned red fruit and plum notes dusted with spice and dried herb. It's robust in body and weight and long on the finish.
