Starting with the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Diamond Mountain District, which comes from a warmer, mountain terroir in the northern part of the valley, this full-bodied, rounded, incredibly textured effort boasts loads of black fruits, savory herbs, eucalyptus, and scorched earth. It has nicely integrated acidity, a deep, multi-dimensional mouthfeel, incredible elegance, and perfect balance, all making for a truly brilliant Mountain Cabernet that will keep for 2-3 decades.

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Diamond Mountain is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep garnet-purple colored, it comes sashaying out of the glass with notes of fragrant earth, exotic spices, black pepper and truffles over a core of cassis, black cherry compote and wild blueberries with touches of violets. Full-bodied, rich, sexy and simply delicious, it fills the mouth with bold, layered black fruit supported by incredible tension and wonderfully ripe tannins, finishing long. 675 cases produced. Drink Date: 2021-2049.

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon (Diamond Mountain) is fabulous. Dark, powerful and explosive, the 2016 is endowed with terrific energy to play off its strong mineral and savory signatures. Crushed rocks, gravel, grilled herbs, smoke, cured meats and lavender are finely drawn in this imposing, impeccably balanced, Diamond Mountain Cabernet. This is a remarkably vivid, poised Cabernet Sauvignon from Lokoya and winemaker Chris Carpenter. The Diamond Mountain Cabernet is sourced entirely from Wallis, which the Jackson family bought a few years ago.

This is full of vibrant cassis, blackberry and plum fruit notes, all driven by intense, briar, anise and apple wood accents. Features notable grip, with the vibrant acidity to match, and is built for the long haul. A serious mountain Cabernet. Best from 2024 through 2040. 675 cases made.
