Cabernet Sauvignon

Widely accepted as one of the world’s best varieties. Cabernet sauvignon is often blended with cabernet franc and merlot. It usually undergoes oak treatment. Food pairings: best with simply prepared red meat. Districts: cabernet sauvignon is planted wherever red wine grapes grow except in the Northern fringes such as Germany. It is part of the great red Médoc wines of France, and among the finest reds in Australia, California and Chile. Typical taste in varietal wine: full-bodied, but firm and gripping when young. With age, polyphenols polymerize: the grip fades away. The rich currant qualities of the Cabernet Sauvignon wine change to that of pencil box. Bell pepper notes remain.

  1. 2008 Seaver Vineyards Diamond Mountain District "GTS"" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon "

    2008 Seaver Vineyards Diamond Mountain District "GTS"" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon "

    $349.94

    Size 750ML


    2008 Vintage Winemaker’s Notes 2008 is the best year we have ever seen for Diamond Mountain. The naturally small crop coupled with an early start to the vintage produced wines with completely ripe, resolved tannins for the first time in recent memory. The vintage in general definitely favors the hills where the heat both helped to get things ripe earlier but also tempered the really hot days with elevation. As we sat down to blend the 2008 GTS, we were struck by how consistently good all three Cab lots were. In the end, putting everything together made the best wine so for the first time ever we will only offer one bottling. Extraction is never an issue with Diamond Mountain wines and this is no exception. Black to the rim, the color hints at the concentration. More effusive than any previous vintage, the nose opens with notes of purple and blue fruit, pain grille, bittersweet chocolate and espresso roast. Sweet tannin helps to frame the blackberry, cherry, and kirsch fruit components on the palate with some lively acidity coming up in the end to lengthen the finish. This is one to drink now or hold (a nice option for a Diamond Mountain wine) and a quality that speaks to the greatness of the vintage. Thomas Rivers Brown Learn More
  2. Seaver Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon

    Seaver Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon

    $349.94

    Size 750ML


    A beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon from the great New York Mets Hall of Fame pitcher, Tom Seaver. He was smart to use Jim Barbour as a vineyard manager and Thomas Rivers Brown as winemaker. Coming from a parcel on Diamond Mountain, the wine is dense purple, shows beautiful crème de cassis fruit, blackberries, a touch of earth, full-bodied richness, beautiful and sweet integrated tannins, as well as oak. This is a beauty and comes in at about 14.5% natural alcohol. Kudos. Here's a celebrity wine that definitely matches the brilliance of the celebrity himself. Drink it over the next 20 years.

  3. 2011 Seaver Vineyards Diamond Mountain District "GTS"" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon "

    2011 Seaver Vineyards Diamond Mountain District "GTS"" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon "

    $349.99

    Size 750ML


    2011 Vintage Winemaker’s Notes On the whole, 2011 was the toughest, most challenging vintage in recent memory. Early rain, late rain and a wide spread botrytis outbreak wreaked havoc with many sites. Everyone, regardless of location, required expert farming and precise attention to detail. Without it, the vintage could have been a total loss. As it so often happens, location was paramount. Fortunate sites in 2011 were either upvalley or high atop the hills with great exposure, like Seaver. Being near the top of Diamond Mountain, we avoided the valley floor fogs that plagued early October. The shallow soils kept everything dry and intact until we were able to harvest perfectly ripe fruit that required minimal sorting. The 2011 GTS Estate is slightly brooding as one would expect from a young mountain wine. The fine tannins grab just slightly upon entry leading to blue and black fruits with remarkable depth and purity. The mouthfeel and texture, which are hallmarks of the Estate, are front and center once again. The fruit remains highlighted as the acidity keeps the wine fresh and long through the finish. Decant if drinking near-term. The NLS, formerly known as Nancy’s Fancy, is the more approachable of the offerings, given in large part to the healthy dose of Clone 7 this wine receives. Dusty and red fruited, structured by lithe natural acidity, one is struck by the completeness of the wine at this early stage. Drink now – 2024. Thomas Rivers Brown Learn More
