2016 Parallel Black Diamond Napa Valley Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

Winemaker Philippe Melka's Tasting Notes

"The 2016 Black Diamond Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon has aromas of creme de cassis, licorice and mocha. On the palate, this wine has excellent acidity with bright cherry, red cassis and chocolate complemented by a velvety texture and lengthy tannins. Well-integrated French Oak lends subtle vanilla and toasty notes. Very vibrant and layered."

94 Points - Wine Advocate

"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Black Diamond Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 'Limelight' is a little closed to begin, giving way to creme de cassis, black forest cake, licorice, earth and cigar box with violet wafts. The palate is full-bodied, firm and grainy with a good intensity of black fruits, finishing long and earthy. Drink date 2018 - 2034."

90 Points - James Suckling

"This offers a rich, slightly spicy and tarry nose with a wealth of ripe red plums and blackberries. Essence-like concentration and ripeness on the palate and a soft, fruity finish. Drink now."
