Mission 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
