The Story

Situated 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!

The Wine

The 2010 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.”
