Winemaker Philippe Melka's Tasting Notes
"The 2017 Black Diamond Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is an age-worthy wine - strong in color and tannin with expressive notes and aromatics. Layers of cacao, rose and dried apricot complement the hints of leather and gravel. On the palate, its bold tannins envelope the mouth adding a complex and lingering mouthfeel. The wine shows a hint of sweetness from the French Oak - expressive vanilla and layers of ripe fruits. This wine is ready to open, but will age beautifully for years to come."

"The inky hued 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Eclipse is stunning, offering a rocking boquet of creme de casis, white chocolate, crushed flowers, graphite and hints of pencil shavings. This full-bodied, power-packed, gorgeous 2017 has a great mid-palate, sweet tannins, and a monster finish. It's up with the creme de la creme!"

"Dark brooding blackberry and plum fruit, richly textured, are seasoned in clove and toasted oak in this broadly concentrated, meaty and complex reserve-level wine. Robustly full bodied, it finishes in savory elements of leather and tobacco that glide through a lengthy finish."
