Double Diamond : 2016 Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

1x 750ml bottle

Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon
Clone: 4, 6, and 337

In 2000, Fred Schrader created Double Diamond as part of his continuing quest to make the best Cabernet Sauvignon that Napa Valley can offer. With the recent success of our 2019 vintage, rewarded the 2022 #1 Wine of the Year by Wine Spectator, we are thrilled to offer you a limited supply of our renowned 2016 vintage. The palate remains rich and fruit forward with notes of ripe black fruits, dark cherry, dried herbs, and baking spices, and the tannins have softened over time, putting this wine in its prime drinking window now.

    The 2016 vintage of Double Diamond opens with layered, intriguing aromas of black currants, dark cherries, blackberry, cherry compote, toast, and oak spice with notes of herbs, pine cone, and dried earth. In the mouth, the palate is rich and juicy, bursting with big, rich flavor. The tannin structure makes this a great wine to enjoy upon release, but it will also mellow nicely for the next two to six years.
