Ascent 2018 Diamond Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon

$ 59.99 $ 69.99
We've been anxiously awaiting the next release of Peter Thompson's (Andrew Geoffry Wines owner and great friend of the store) Ascent label. Peter only makes the Ascent when he comes across superb fruit at a superb price and this is the first new release since the fantastic 2012 version.

Declassified from his Diamond Mountain estate vineyard, the fruit for this delicious and complex Cabernet shows all the classic flavors and stylistic cues that have made Diamond Mountain Cabernets some of the most sought after and expensive in the Valley.

This brilliant Cabernet Sauvignon boasts a deep ruby/purple color as well as an elegant perfume of spring flowers, black currants, licorice, cedar, and subtle toasty oak. It is medium to full-bodied with sweet tannin, and a long, authoritative, elegant finish.
