Wallis Family Estate Cabernet Sauvignon - 2006(W-2044)

Wallis Family Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

Winery Story

Wallis Estate Vineyards started in 1975 with the purchase of 85 acres on Diamond Mountain, which is southwest of Calistoga, in The Napa Vall... (more...)ey. With the land came an original stone house, which was built in 1906, and also lovely old barn built in the late 1800’s. The Barn was designed by W.H. Corlett. In 1997 they planted about 13 acres of vineyards. The vineyard is planted in eight distinct blocks on a spacing of 4X7. They are in the heart of The Diamond Mountain District at an elevation 600 to 800 feet.

Tasting Note

The 2006 Wallis Family Estate Diamond Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon “is a rare find indeed.” Made from a blend of the traditional... (more...) Bordeaux varietals, it has bold aromatic characters of black currants, mouth filling plums, espresso and toast topped off with vanilla bean ice cream notes. This wine has an opulent full bodied character that lingers long after the wine is swallowed. A wine to enjoy immediately or to hold for the next 7 to 14 years.

Love the beautiful nose of deep dark blackberries and a lighter hint of raspberries. A velvety mouthfeel leaves hints tobacco and chalky tannins.

Inky ruddy in color, opaqe. Ultra chalky tannins, surprisingly light mouthfeel. Tasty wine; think it might integrate beautifully over next 2-3 years.
