2009 Parallel Black Diamond Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (750mL 6pk)

Winemaker Philippe Melka's Tasting Notes

"Ripe, juicy strawberry on the nose with underlying tones of black currant. Soft, lush and well-rounded on the approach with sweet mountain tannins, true to the St. Helena hillside. The Black Diamond 2009 is a big structured wine with a strong acid backbone that leaves notes of cassis and wet stones on the finish. This wine's tannins are well-intregrated with a soft texture."

94 Points - Wine Enthusiast

"Very rich, ripe and dramatically textured, this has explosive flavors of blackberry, creme de cassis, dried herb, and smoked meat flavors, enriched by smoky oak. It show the tough, hard tannins you often find in low production mountain Cabernets. Made by well-known winemaker, Philippe Melka, it has the structure of a wine that needs age. Give it at least eight years, and could be a wine that lasts decades."
