Diamond Dust 'Trig Point' Cabernet Sauvignon 2020


Diamond Dust Vineyard sits on benchland in the Alexander Valley of Sonoma, facing South/Southeast. Topography protects this vineyard from Pacific winds.

Intense purple and reds in color. The aromatics are opulent and very floral. Black fruits were a common theme. Black cherry and plum. The mouth follows with rich dark fruits of plum, blackberry and some licorice texture. Lush ripe tannins, full body and the nice creamy, velvet, tongue-wrapping flavor.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon, all Jackson clone; alcohol: 14.5%; Diamond Dust vineyard on benchland in Alexander Valley facing south/southwest; 2020 quite small crop but excellent growing season; hand harvested, yield 3.5 tons/acre; 100% barrel fermented; aging: Taransaud and Boutes oak barrels, 25% new; 60% French, 20% American, 20% Hungarian for 18 months; bottled unfined.

"This bold, full-bodied wine is packed with blackberry, black currant and black olive flavors on a good structure of moderate tannins. It offers generous flavors, good concentration and a velvety texture at a reasonable price." - 91 points, Wine Enthusiast
