Mission Briefing

Codename:

Diamonds really are forever

Today’s very highly recommended wine is a true Napa Valley Diamond Mountain gem that we went absolutely bonkers for. This wine is incredibly good.

It is a true thrill to have a 10 year old Napa Cabernet Sauvignon that is so balanced and elegant. This 2003 Dyer Vineyard Diamond Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon wine has lost none of its luster. In fact, our tasting panel was of the impression that this wonderful wine is still just reaching its peak. Enjoy now or hold for the next few years. Decant for an hour for best results. The more you let this wine breathe, the better it gets.

93 points - Doug Wilder: “Offers a pretty nose of spice, verbena, lavender and blackberry with a gorgeous palate entry of licorice, currant and mocha. Excellent balance. Drink 2013 - 2019.” Tasted 5/4/13

Tasting Profile

Look:

Pretty ruby red at the edges, darkening to a deep crimson at the heart of the wine.

Smell:

Fragrant and full with big black cherry, dark strawberry, brown spice, fall leaves, cassis and blackberry. Underneath these, the wine surprises with a very subtle hint of eucalyptus.

Taste:

Delicious and dark with flavors that first present themselves at the edges of the palate. Blueberry, blackberry and cherry predominate, with cassis, dried fall leaves and sweet brown spice taking up a secondary position at the rear of the palate.

Finish:

This wine speeds across the palate before flavors take hold at the corners of the mouth. A subtle dryness spreads rather swiftly, revealing soft tannins as it moves.

Pairing:

Enjoy this brightly flavorful and very flexible wine with anything from a perfectly seared filet mignon to a duck breast in a black currant sauce.
