Nestled in the Mayacamas mountain range, on Napa and Sonoma county line, this high-altitude AVA is known for great acidity, concentration, and balance.
Diamond Mountain District gets its name from the bits of volcanic glass and obsidian that sparkle within the rich volcanic soils of this region. This AVA is home to fewer than 20 wineries producing from small plots of land.
Intriguingly savory on the nose; expressive black olives, dried black currants, espresso, and leather burst from the glass. The palate starts with notes of exotic spices and espresso, built solidly around a juicy core of baked plum, sour cherry, and cranberry. Grippy and rustic tannins lead to a long, lingering, and velvety finish.
