Sweet and ripe fruit...black cherry, raspberry jam, with fresh squeezed blackberries (which I always pick up with this wine, and I attribute that to the decent percentage of Malbec in it). Good bit of licorice too. Quite silky and medium bodied on the palate...not as hefty as expected and definitely not as tannic/chalky as expected. Kiss of mint with raspberry infused dark chocolate with hardly any savory/herbal notes towards the finish. This seems totally open for business. — 11 days ago

Fruit in your face, great balance, excellent from pop and pour, ready to kick some butt. Very approachable wine. Blackberry that has juuuust ripened on the front and quite a bit of it without seeming to be overextracted. Just right. This wine would go with a myriad of foods, not just a steak. Tannin starts to build in the middle, but is actually quite soft for a 2014. Touch of pepper on the finish without being obnoxious. REALLY balanced wine.

Sori Bricco Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Didn’t think I’d like a Cab from Diamond Mountain but this one is quite different. Really smooth and balanced as opposed to tannic and dark as I had been under the impression of. Dark cherries, plums and black currants with herbal hints of spices and wet earth. Color of deep purple and rich structure but so well rounded on the palate. — 17 days ago

Voir Dire Diamond Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

I think this is my first 2015 Napa Cab but I just couldn’t wait any longer to open one after all the super positive feedback I’ve been hearing about this project involving @Isaac Pirolo and fellow trial attorney and owner, Jason Itkin. This is young but very open for business and boasts loads of intense radiant rich red fruit. The fruit dominates now and it’s delicious but there is still noticeable weight and pliant tannins. Very impressive stuff. — 17 days ago

Nice expression of Diamond Mountain, though less structured that past vintages... softer and rounded — 5 hours ago

Diamond Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

A classic Napa Valley CS from an era where everything was about sheer size and brute force.
With zero points earned for elegance this will please folks in the “big & bold” camp.

Simply the best. Forget about the rest. The biggest, baddest Cab you can find. It’s got legs for miles. — 18 days ago

I opened one of these knowing it would be young as I just needed to get a feel for the style and see how it would improve.

I’m writing this note on day 2 after I re-corked the night before. Chalky/dusty red and black fruit...aromatics of tart raspberry, black cherry, floral and a hint of a sweet note at the core. The youthfulness really shows itself on the palate where all the fruit is tart. Geez...and this is day 2! Dried and candied cranberry, rhubarb juice and dark chocolate drizzled raspberries. Acidic and tannic. Mid palate is a bit more forgiving showing a glimpse at where this will go. Powerful structure and a don’t touch for 3+ years. This will gain a point or two by then easily. Very well crafted.

@Joshua Fisher : Would be a solid CabFranc to have!

@Joshua Fisher Dawnine really doesn't make too much of this. That being said, it would make a very good premium Cabernet Franc to have. But I fear that serving a current vintage would not represent the capability of this wine at all.
