Wallis Family Estate 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon

Diamond Mountain District, Napa Valley

100% Cabernet Sauvignon, 200 Cases Produced, 14.8 % Alcohol

“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+ Points Awarded by Robert Parker

"Rich without being weighty, this red features a firm mix of loamy earth, dried berry, licorice and dried herb notes. Finely detailed flavors mark the complex finish. Drink now through 2018.” –J.L. 91 Points Awarded

“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 Points Awarded, Cellar Selection

“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 Points Awarded by Stephen Tanzer

Diamond Mountain District, Napa Valley

61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Cab Franc, 13% Merlot, 9 % Petit Verdot

200 Cases Produced, 14.5% Alcohol

“The 2008 Little Sister Proprietary Red exhibits a perfumed nose of forest floor, red and black fruits and a touch of mossy underbrush. Medium to full-bodied and elegant with silky sweet tannins and a judicious touch of oak, this restrained yet interesting wine should drink well for at least a decade. 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.” 89 Points Awarded by Robert Parker

“Dry and smooth as a fine old Scotch, with intricately woven blackberry, black currant, green olive and herb flavors leading to a long, spicy finish. The tannins are significant, but very finely ground. Classy and powerful, this Cabernet should develop over the next eight years.” - S.H. 92 Points Awarded, Cellar Selection

“Both ripe and generous, with dark berry and red and black licorice flavors that show a pleasant chewy tannic earthiness. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2020. 200 cases made.” –JL 89 Points Awarded
