Winemaker Philippe Melka's Tasting Notes
"The nose is developing beautifully with aromas of cassis, tobacco, leather, and bay leaf. On the palate, the wine is medium to full bodied, multi dimensional and vibrant with characters of raspberry crumble, black currant, cocoa and a savory mineral note. The tannins are concentrated and fine grained with a long finish."
94+ Points - Wine Advocate
"The 2015 Black Diamond Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Reward has a deep garnet-purple color and earthy nose with tobacco, tilled soil and forest floor over kirsch, red and black currants and plums. The palate is full-bodied, firm, grainy and concentrated, finishing long and earthy."
91 Points - James Suckling
"Ripe dark plums and spicy, earthy aromas with a very plush, fleshy and deeply flavorful palate that carries a wealth of ripe-plum flavor in an approachable style. Drink or hold."
