J. Davies Diamond Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 750ML

Notes from the Winemaker

This Cabernet opens with rich aromas of red raspberry and red plum, accentuated by undertones of cocoa powder and cola spice. Supple tannins anchor the wines well-structured palate, where a concentrated entry of baked strawberry and blackberry leads to a juicy acidity and lengthy finish.

Blend: 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Malbec, 6% Petit Verdot

Reviews and Ratings

95 Points/Tasting Panel
The Davies family purchased Diamond Mountain Vineyard in 1965, replanting it to Bordeaux varieties in 1994. The 16th vintage of this wine is a blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Malbec, and 6% Petit Verdot that spent 22 months in 62% new French oak. The opulence on the nose shows off dark chocolate, savory herbs, leather, and blackberry. It’s a voluptuous, lush, and earthy red that offers up cinnamon and cumin with a hint of spearmint. The black fruit is lathered with licorice.

94 Points/Wine Enthusiast
This wine has a supple succulence of black fruit on the midpalate that's accented by earthy, savory spice. Dark cherry and plum take on bolder, concentrated richness as the wine opens, with expansive, grippy tannins lending support. Enjoy 2026–2031.

94 Points/James Suckling
Very vibrant, keenly articulated and concentrated cabernet that offers powerful black cherries and blackberries with dark chocolate and a deep, intense finish. This is full of promise. Try from 2020.

92 Points/Jeb Dunnuck
What’s considered the estate wine, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Diamond Mountain is another impressive wine from this estate and winemaker Celia Welch. Ample savory earth, mushroom, and both red and black fruits all emerge from this medium-bodied Cabernet that has moderate tannins, impressive balance, and plenty of upfront charm and accessibility, especially for a Diamond Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. Despite already drinking great, I suspect it will keep for 10-15 years or more.

92 Point /Wine Spectator
This sports an intriguing core of loganberry and mulled raspberry flavors, with sassafras, menthol and tea accents weaving throughout. Mulled spice details infuse the seductive finish. Distinctive. Drink now through 2028.
