This is a kind of junior Cab to the winery's regular Diamond Mountain bottling whose 2006 was spectacular. The Little Sister is similarly rich and oaky with broad flavors of blackberries and currants. It's very tannic and should improve over the next 2-4 years. S.H.

The nose offers robust aromas of crème cassis blackberry and spice while a touch of graphite and hint of tobacco add complexity. A soft velvety texture makes way for tannins that continue to build without overpowering the allspice blueberry liqueur and dark chocolate on the mid palate. Fine-grained tannins and subtle oak persist towards the finish which is long and loaded with fruit.
