The 2016 Tribe & Arrow Diamond Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon is our innagural vintage and addition to our Olet'te family. Tribe & Arrow celebrates the best of Napa Valley’s mountain fruit and the king of the region. Powerful and bold yet seductive and balanced in structure with hints of red and black fruit and a festival of purple and red flowers resolving in generous tannins and a long finish.
TASTING NOTES: Diamond Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon is opaque, deep garnet with a classic Diamond Mountain nose—cocoa spice, dried herbs and lavender, black cherry, cola, and sassafras. The wine is immediately rich, dense, and focused on the palate with cascading flavors that do not recede. Dark chocolate and freshly tilled earth are accompanied by blackberry preserves, strawberry coulis, and refreshing minerality. The finish is lingering and echoes the round and opulent mid palate.
WINE FACTS: Nestled in the northwestern hillsides of Napa Valley, the Diamond Mountain District is sparsely planted, with fewer than 550 acres under vine. This warm hillside appellation is perfect for ripening Cabernet Sauvignon, the prevalent variety of the area. With porous, volcanic-derived soils, the vines produce distinctively earthy, chocolate-laced flavors, wrapped around rich, opulent tannins. Production 130 Cases
