Surprisingly exceeded expectations. Not sure it is worth the $80 price tag but very good. Opened up nicely after 30 min decant.

Pnp, drinking wonderfully right now. Lush black and blue fruits with subtle tobacco and cocoa. Still has a few more years in its peak drinking window.

Significantly better than the bottle from 2 months ago, that had to be an off bottle. This is drinking so well right now. Elegant and silky smooth with black & blue fruits, creamy cocoa, and a bit of earth.

Whoa significant changes since 10 months ago...either this is an off ish bottle or this has drastically changed.
Much, much more earth, mint, mushrooms, and leather flavors.
This has taken a 180 from 10 months ago.
Still have a few bottles left so hopefully this is just an off bottle.

Decanted for 60.min.

Bold, deep ripe blueberry, plums, and spice. Well-structured tannins, finishes with creamy notes of toffee and dark chocolate.

A Last Bottle selection... delicious gravelly fruit with ideal backbone... should age for a decade! A great wine from a great grape site by a talented winemaker!

Love Diamond Mountain wines! Actually had a Chardonnay with dinner and had this after. Had a Black Cod with veggies. This would have been perfect with dinner. So, it's not a big cab, but it's smooth and tasty.
