“The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon (Diamond Mountain) is another arrestingly beautiful wine from Robert Craig. Graphite, crème de cassis, pencil shavings and savory herbs all race out of the glass as this complex, multi-dimensional wine shows off its personality and pedigree. These volcanic, white ash soil at the southern fork of the appellation yield a Cabernet Sauvignon of real distinction. More than anything else, the 2016 offers striking vibrancy and detail for such a big wine. It is another superb wine in this range of gorgeous Cabernets ... .”

Introducing our 2016 vintage Diamond Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon; exclusive first offering for our Cabernet Club members at Robert Craig Winery.
The 2016 vintage Diamond Mountain Cabernet continues our partnership with the sublime Andrew Geoffrey Vineyard at the summit of Diamond Mountain. We received only a few tons of this highly sought-after fruit from the perfect 2016 vintage, so our production is tiny at less than 300 cases. The vineyard's white, powdery volcanic ash soils deliver wines of breathtaking intensity and longevity. Even with the enormity of the structure and fruit, there is grace and nuance in the finished wine as Antonio Galloni notes below.
Our Diamond Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon release is one of the great red wines produced in the Napa Valley each year. Don’t let this opportunity pass.
