2009 Wallis Diamond Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $70)
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon flows with black cherries, plums, spices, tar and licorice. It possesses striking inner perfume and beautifully expressive fruit in a style that brings tons of elegance to Diamond Mountain. Layers of flavor build towards the impressive, textured finish. This is another terrific showing from Wallis Family Estate. (RP)
A great follow-up to the winery's 2008, this continues a roll of classy Diamond Mountain-based Cabs from Wallis Family. It's dry, softly tannic and likeable for its depth of blackberry, cherry, currant and cedar flavors. This straddles the line between immediate drinkability and ageability.
Wine & Spirits
Selected from a vineyard planted in 1997, rising from 600 to 800 feet, this young wine bristles with cool Diamond Mountain richness. It’s a heady luxury cuvée, emphasizing textural pleasure: round, supple and chocolatey. Cellar this to bring out its complexity, or enjoy it now for that textural nuance with prime rib.
