Tasting Notes

Dave Thompson, The Napa Wine Project
The 2018 Poggi Diamond Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon is deep ruby in color; the aromatics are immediately powerful and focused on ripe fruit including blackberry and dark cherry with hints of black licorice and cassis. Also shows notes of dried herbs, dust and of sage. Features a richness of flavor across the palate; flavors of spicy Santa Rosa plum and black currant are framed by a savory, dark finish with gravely grape and oak tannins that persist for some times. Also lingers with darker peppercorn. This wine is big but balanced and in its youth would pair perfectly with a ribeye right off of the BBQ. Texas steak lovers looking for a hillside grown wine with loads of character would immensely enjoy this bottling.

San Francisco Wine Panel Score 95 Points
2018 Poggi Cabernet Sauvignon Diamond Mountain District, Napa Valley is a big, focused, youthfully firm and ultimately very flavorful Cabernet that shows the stamp of its highly praised vintage and the backbone of its noble appellation. As the nose airs, aromas of blueberry, black currant, black raspberry, mulberry, peppercorn, cedar, mace, clove, vanilla and coffee bean fan out above a mineral undercurrent. It proves as rich and gripping as expected on the palate, where blueberry, black currant, blackberry and boysenberry fruit notes are at center stage, while flavors of leather, coffee bean, mace, cedar, baking spice and a hint of dried sage. The finish is gutsy and lingering and the wine grows more impressive as it airs. It is likely six to eight years from its maturity. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, 65 cases made.
