mid-slope on Diamond Mountain, this 2.3 acre vineyard is a real
gem-in-the-rough. At ½ the price of its
esteemed neighbor “Diamond Creek”, this wine will blow your mind and not your
wallet. In a recent “Mountain Cabernet”
tasting, Dyer stood its own against some big-boys (and girls). Only 241 cases of this 2010 Cabernet (76%
Cabernet Sauvignon, 19 Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot) were produced! The
wine received 94 Points from both Robert Parker and Anthony Galloni!
showcases an amazing color and aroma!
Intense aromas of huckleberry and cassis with a touch of cocoa dust and
a whiff of spice jump out of the glass.
On the palate, this harmoniously made 2010 Cabernet is lush and full in
body and shows an amazing balance of great fruit and acid. Coated with powerful layers of black stone
fruit, chocolate, spice and a touch of toasty vanilla. This full-bodied wine finishes with silky and
supple tannins. This is a wine that will
drink and cellar well for 15+ years!
Robert Parker 94 Points:
“Dyer's 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon is superb. The finessed, elegant side
of Diamond Mountain comes through in spades. A pedigreed, silky wine, the 2010
impressed for its exceptional balance and pure class. Today the aromas and flavors are naturally
quite primary, so readers will want to cellar for 2010 for at least a few
years. This is one of the most refined
Cabernet Sauvignons I have ever tasted from Diamond Mountain, The only bad news
is that yields were down significantly and there are only 250 cases to go
around versus the 400 that is more typical.
Anticipated Maturity: 2018-2030.”
