Product Overview

The 2016 Dyer Diamond Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon, from the famous husband and wife team of Dawnine and Bill Dyer (Dawnine previously with Domaine Chandon, Bill with Sterling), is sourced from their small 2.3 acre Dyer Vineyard on Diamond Mountain. This classic Cabernet is deep, rich, and nuanced. Black cherry and plum aromas are laced thru with savory notes of tobacco and dried herbs. On the palate, it's dense and chewy, with fully ripe flavors of ripe red currants and plums and a deep layering of floral, lavender, graphite, and cedar. Tannins are ripe and lush.

Varietal Composition: 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot
Appellation: Diamond Mountain District AVA, Napa Valley
Winemakers: Dawnine and Bill Dyer

95 Points - Wine Advocate
"The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Diamond Mountain is blended of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot. Deep garnet-purple colored, it has a compelling nose of fresh red and black currants, black berries and underbrush with touches of garrigue, lavender, cigar box and fertile loam. The palate is full-bodied and built like a brick house, with firm, ripe, grainy tannins and bold fruit complimented by lovely freshness, finishing long and crunchy. 280 cases produced." -LPB, 10/29/18

93 Points - Vinous
"Dyer's 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon offers lovely textural depth and nuance. Pliant, supple and inviting, the 2016 will drink very well with minimal cellaring. Lavender, sage, plum, mint and licorice complement the dark blue and purplish fruit nicely, while bright underpinnings of minerality extend the finish. Overall, this is a relatively approachable young Cabernet from Dawnine and Bill Dyer. Dollops of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot round out the blend." -AG, Dec/2018
