From the top of Diamond Mountain comes this extremely small production Cab Franc. It's a beast but in all the nice ways.

Prior notes remain. This is an incredible wine and an unbeatable QPR. If you like a more fruit-driven style of Cab Franc you should definitely try this. Lacks any of the green flavors that are common in cab franc. Great balance, as well.

This was so good. Small vineyard on Diamond Mountain. Fruit forward with raspberry and plum flavors and a hint of vanilla - lacked the greenness/herbal flavors you can get with a CF. this was medium bodied and despite the concentration of fruit it wasn't jammy or overly rich. A touch tannic but with some short time they smoothed out. There was a great acidity too. Between this and Dyer I'm noticing that they're doing some special things with CF on Diamond Mountain.

I will let others rate this as it was one of the wines I brought, but wanted to share the background on this as many have asked.

Minuscule 50 case production of 100% Cabernet Franc from a 13 acre estate on top of Diamond Mountain (most of the grapes are sold to Cardinale, Lokoya and Haber). This is aged two years in French oak (Sylvain), followed by two years in bottle. The Cab Franc makes up 13% of the vineyard and was planted from cuttings from Chateau Cheval Blanc!
