The 2016 vintage of Double Diamond opens with layered, intriguing aromas of black currants, dark cherries, blackberry, cherry compote, toast, and oak spice with notes of herbs, pine cone, and dried earth.
The palate is rich and juicy, bursting with big flavor. The tannin structure makes this a great wine to enjoy upon release, but it will also mellow nicely for the next two to six years.
Beginning with the 2016 vintage, Double Diamond is sourced exclusively from a complement of prime vineyard estates on the warm Napa Valley Appellation of Oakville. Each incredible vineyard contributes its unique character to this enticing and eminently satisfying Napa Cabernet. Oakville, a center of fine winemaking since the 1860s, remains a favorite among connoisseurs of world-class Cabernet Sauvignon.
