    This Wine Is Rated:


    Diamond Collection Claret typically includes some combination of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. We harvest grapes from our own estate as well as other Napa, Sonoma and El Dorado vineyards. This combination of climates results in great complexity and excellent balance. In fact, we joke that our Black Label Claret has a problem offering itself for far less than it deserves. It’s a premium wine at a popular price and it has set the bar for the quality of the entire brand. The bottle is distinguished with gold netting in order to convey its prestigious status, a tribute to the way Europe’s finest wines were once presented.

    Winemaker’s Notes:
    2012 was an excellent vintage across California due to the steady, mild temperatures during the summer months. This consistency helped the grapes mature gradually and develop deeply concentrated fruit with complex aromatics, excellent body, and supple tannins.
