Description

Description

Armstrong Ranch sits high atop Diamond Mountain, just west of Calistoga. The vineyard blocks are planted on an extreme hillside with an elevation range of 850 to 1,200 feet. The thin, volcanic soils are laden with obsidian (volcanic glass) and very limiting; each vine produces only 2 tons per acre. Due to the varying elevations and row orientations, this vineyard is typically harvested three or four different times; sometimes a quarter of a row is left behind to ripen further. All of these factors make it a difficult place for a grapevine, and the resulting wines are incredibly rich in flavor with a classic Diamond Mountain tannins structure.

Wine & Vintage Details

Tasting Notes

Diamond Mountain District wines are characterized by power and longevity. Deep purple in the glass, the nose informs the palate what is to come. Black plums, cremé de cassis, dark chocolate and an alluring note of cedar shavings and graphite show the incredible depth of this wine. Baking spices and tobacco are apparent on the nose and balance with the dark mountain fruit flavors. On the palate, glazed plum and dark fruit character shine through with the focused tannins balance nicely to create a long satisfying finish. While approachable now, will drink very well over the next 25+ years.
