The inspiration for the Diamond Collection was a bottle of 1906 Claret we found in the cellar of the Napa Valley property we purchased in 1975. I designed a new label reminiscent of this old bottle and created the Diamond Collection Black Label Claret, which is our company’s most recognized offering. Today, Diamond Collection includes 13 varietals, each identified with a brightly colored label. The quality and authenticity of Diamond Collection is extremely important because we are a family company and our name is on the label. As such, you can trust that we’ll always give you the very best.” —Francis Ford Coppola

Diamond Collection wines are classic California expressions that offer fruit-forward, multi-dimensional flavor and immediate drinkability. Diamond Collection Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of fruit from appellations as far north as El Dorado and as far south as Paso Robles. This soil diversity helps us produce a more complex wine. Furthermore, some of our vineyards experience a unique diurnal temperature pattern where extremely hot days are offset by very cool nights. This slows the ripening process and creates a broader mosaic of flavors.

VINTAGE NOTES

We came off an early vintage in 2014 only to have an even earlier season in 2015. Limited rainfall in the spring helped reduce yields and contributed to excellent concentration in our Cabernet. There is good interplay between the juicy freshness of this year’s fruit and the smoky earthy characteristics this vintage displays. With supple tannins and good weight, this wine offers a velvety mouthfeel and flavors that are long lived on the finish.
