ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: Opulent, sexy, and immediately charming is the 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Diamond Mountain (1,100 cases). It exhibits a saturated purple color in addition to an explosive nose of licorice, cedar, roasted herbs, and black plums and currants. Full-bodied, with a voluptuous texture, low acidity, and heady alcohol, this offering possesses considerable tannin, but it is beautifully submerged by the wine's depth of extract and high glycerin. Impressive, with a flamboyant personality, this 1997 should drink well for 18-20 years.
WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW: Dark, firm and concentrated, with chewy tannins wrapped around a core of earthy currant, mineral, blackberry and cherry, finishing with excellent length and depth. Needs time.
The volcanic rock and ash soil of Reverie Vineyard stresses the vines, resulting in smaller fruit laden with black cherry and currant flavors. The steep, terraced slope faces west and cane-pruned vines allow for maximum sunlight exposure for the fruit. The vines are spaced six feet apart and planted with several different clones including Sees, Clone #7 and Jordan...wine is 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc, 510 cases produced
