Red Diamond Cabernet 2011
"Our prize offering, the ultra premium Claret, sports a label that honors the first Cabernet Sauvignon blended in a Bordeaux style by Gustave Niebaum in 1910. Claret is a term originally coined by the British to describe Cabernet-based wines. This Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc blend is alluring and sophisticated; it is memorably lush with a tapestry of smooth tannins and succulent flavors of wild berries, plum and anise. Borrowing tradition of European wineries, we add gold netting to bottle to signify outstanding quality of wine." -Winery
Red Diamond is a brand of wines produced in Washington State since 2003. The value driven wines were initially only marketed to restaurants, but were such a success, that they expanded to retail offerings in 2004. The wines are available in Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Chardonnay. They continue to be some of the most popular American restaurant and bar wines, offering good bang-for-buck quality.
This was fruit forward with quite a bit of red cherry. Not dry or tannic, but the absence of that seemed a bit uncharacteristic for a cab. Seems like it could be all things to all people. Good price point.
External Reviews for Red Diamond Cabernet
This Bordeaux-styled Cabernet relies on a nice helping of Petit Verdot to enhance the dark color, and bring velvety, espresso-like flavors to the already generous black fruit flavors.
A long-time customer favorite, this Cab-based red is lush and soft, with rich spice and velvety fruit. Very easy to drink.
