2012 Parallel Black Diamond Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Winemaker Philippe Melka's Tasting Notes

“This is a deep ruby hued, beauty of a Cab. It has a rich, earthy nose of eucalyptus, pencil shavings, violets and ripe blackberry. On the palate you'll notice a perfect balance between great acidity and chewy tannins complimented by dark berry notes and a slight smokiness. The Black Diamond unveils it's complex layers as it opens in the glass. Stunning!” 

94+ Points - Wine Advocate

"The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Perseverence, which comes from a steep mountainside vineyard is a much more limited bottling. This ratchets up the level of concentration on the straight Cabernet Sauvignon label with expansive blueberry and blackberry fruit, licorice and camphor. Complex, full-bodied and stunningly pure and rich this is an intriguing and rather authoritative example of Napa Cabernet Sauvignon at its best. Give it a couple years of cellaring and drink it over the following 15 or more years."
