Opulent sexy and immediately charming is the 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Diamond Mountain (1100 cases). It exhibits a saturated purple color in addition to an explosive nose of licorice cedar roasted herbs and black plums and currants. Full-bodied with a voluptuous texture low acidity and heady alcohol this offering possesses considerable tannin but it is beautifully submerged by the wine's depth of extract and high glycerin. Impressive with a flamboyant personality this 1997 should drink well for 18-20 years.
