WHY WILL LOVES DOUBLE DIAMOND

I love that I can get high quality wine with a top-tier Napa Valley pedigree at a more accessible price point. Acclaimed winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown’s Schrader Cellars wines have a five-year waitlist, but with Double Diamond you can get 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the best vineyard in Napa Valley delivered to your door.

Double Diamond : 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon 750mL

2019 CABERNET SAUVIGNON 750mL

$80

In the glass, the wine displays a nearly opaque ruby-purple hue. Upon closer inspection, aromas emerge in waves suggesting framboise, nutmeg, toasted cedar bark, plum reduction, and pennyroyal mint. The sleek palate is marked by mouth-watering notes such as blackberry compote, dark chocolate shavings, cassis, oolong tea, flint, and lavender. The dynamic flavors interact on the mid-palate with a vivid harmony, carrying through to the long floral finish, which lasts for up to a minute. With a  pleasing acidity and fine tannic framework, this wine is very enjoyable today and should develop gracefully in the cellar for years to come.
