Phil Steinschriber 100 point Winemaker for the coveted Diamond Creek Vineyards presents his own small lot Cabernet Sauvignon!
2013 Napa WaterMark Cabernet Sauvignon
This cabernet sauvignon has aromas of cassis, bittersweet chocolate and vanilla with notes of cedar and anise. Oak comes through to complete this full bodied wine. The entry is sweet with a plum and cassis character continuing to please the palate as the vanilla, oak, chocolate and toast notes come to play. This wine is great now but can be laid down until 2021 or beyond.
