2019 Dyer Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
96 Points, Lisa Perotti-Brown, Parker’s Wine Advocate
The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Diamond Mountain is deep garnet-purple in color. It erupts from the glass with intense Black Forest cake, plum preserves and crème de cassis scents, followed by hints of Indian spices, underbrush and unsmoked cigars. The full-bodied palate is concentrated and lively, featuring loads of earthy nuances intertwined with the rich black fruit preserves flavors and a velvety texture, finishing long and spicy.
96 Points, Vinous
“The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is sublime. Bright and savory, with tons of energy, the 2019 captures all the personality of this tiny vineyard on Diamond Mountain. Dried rose petal, lavender, red plum, graphite and crushed rocks add layers of nuance to this mid-weight, classically built Cabernet from Dyer. In a word; superb.”
Dyer makes some of the most compelling wines in all of Napa Valley at their tiny Diamond Mountain estate. For some reason, Dyer remains very much under the radar. Readers with classically leaning palates will want to check out these wines.”
