2008 Wallis Family Estate Diamond Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon

Robert Parker 12/2010          The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Diamond Mountain reveals a similar, slightly deeper ruby/purple color along with abundant notes of creme de cassis, graphite, crushed rocks and spice. Full-bodied and rich, this outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon is drinking well now yet should age nicely for 12-13 years. A new discovery for me, these two reds are both impressive efforts made in an elegant, fresh, lively style with plenty of depth and richness.   90+

Stephen Tanzer (June 2011)  “Good deep red. Slightly high-toned aromas of cherry liqueur, licorice, tar and loam, along with a cooler minty nuance. Then supple and fresh in the mouth, with floral red fruit flavors enlivened by integrated acidity. The dusty tannins are nicely ripe for Diamond Mountain Cabernet. Well-balanced and persistent.” 91

Wine Enthusiast Magazine ( October 2011)  “Rich, elaborate and layered. If this Cab were a fabric, it would be suede. Shows the tannins and minerals of Diamond Mountain, with potent flavors of blackberries, cherries, currants, cola, anise and sweet smoky oak. The finish is wonderfully dry, firm and long. Should develop for at least eight years.” - S.H. 94
