   “The coolness of Diamond Mountain and the coolness of 2011 combine in the crisp lines of this cabernet. It has the foresty greenness of ferns and cedar, a sour-cherry tartness to the fruit, and mellow, umami tones of woodland mushrooms. Earthy and evocative, this is a tight young wine that will gain in stature over the next several years.”-JG   


“Shows pronounced herbal, dill and celery flavors. Drink now through 2021. 650 cases made.” –JL  November 2014

"Meaty, tannic, stoic and sturdy--this teeth-grabber is nevertheless expressive and satin-textured. Bravo to winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown, who fought a challenging rainier-than-most growing season. The darkest fruits and a fearless ripeness are alive in this red." Merideth May

Wallis Family Estate, Diamond Mountain District (Napa Valley) Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 ($65): " Diamond Mountain, situated at the warmer northern tip of the Napa Valley, is Cabernet Sauvignon country. This expression of the Diamond Mountain Cab terroir from Wallis Family shows earthy minerality, good balance, and the sort of firm structure necessary for longevity. It is rich and darkly fruited and built for the long haul. " Robert Whitley
