February - California Cabernet 2008

Diamond Creek, Red Rock Terrace, Diamond Mountain District, Napa Valley


Sweet black fruit, red cherry, vanilla and spicy bouquet. Has an almost European slant with polished tannins and some minerality on the finish. Rich and concentrated yet well balanced with a fine vein of tannin and acidity. A superb example. 18.93pts/20
