Wine Advocate  

The 2003 Diamond Mountain (2,300 cases of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc, and 6% Petit Verdot) comes from an 11-acre gravel/clay vineyard on Diamond Mountain. Dense and full-bodied with huge, concentrated, smoky black currant fruit intermixed with deep, chewy, coffee notes as well as black fruits, it reveals a Bordeaux-like austerity that suggests cellaring for 2-3 years will be beneficial. It can be drunk over the following 15.

International Wine Cellar  
Full ruby. Brooding aromas of black fruits, licorice, violet and lead pencil. Dry and broad, with a distinctly chocolatey ripeness. Currently shows less flavor interest than the finished 2002, but this is quite unevolved. Finishes with a boatload of tannins. 94 points
Ramey Tasting Notes  
An 11-acre vineyard planted in 1998, this is our third and final harvest from this site. Located off Diamond Mountain Road above Diamond Creek Vineyard, the soil is gravelly clay-loam and the vine rows run up and down the hillside, rather than being terraced. Blend composition for the 2003 vintage is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc, and 6% Petite Verdot.
