    Winemaker's Notes:

    Harvested from dramatic vineyards high above Napa Valley, the 2006 Diamond Mountain Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon speaks volumes about mountain-grown fruit. Inky and complex, this reserve wine is packed with intense blackberry character layered with dark chocolate, herbs and oak spice. The hint of wild herbs gives a distinctive, fresh mountain character to the core of dark berry flavors, while firm tannins support them through the lingering finish.

    Blend: 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2.5% Merlot, 2.5% Petit Verdot

    Critical Acclaim:

    A silky vintage of Sterling's Diamond Mountain bottling, this has the superripe, apricot-like character that marked the area's cabernet in 2006. It melds that fruit into a fine structure, so that the tannins seem fruity, gentle and harmonious. The ferrous, earthy edge on that tannin keeps the wine mouthwatering. Serve this with roast squab stuffed with dried fruit.
