Aged perfectly. Earthy with good fruit balance. As it opened it became soft and velvety, but with good length. A very pleasant drink

Maybe just a phase, but very lean. Not too exciting. Definitely better the first time tasted @ winery

Hard to believe this was panned, along with all the 2000 vintage.

Tons of fruit, pushed to the brink of ripeness. Tasting great, even after 9 years

Just lovely. Comes together in decanter in about 20 min. Fantastic integration of fruit and structure, with a silky, velvety and weighty presence on the palate.

This baby kicked ass- put in in a lineup with 10 Brunello, 9 Rutherford cab, 6 Dubrul Vyd cab, 10 Howell Mtn cab. Best o the bunch!

A little past its prime drinking window, in my opinion. Still good, with nice texture, but fruit has diminished.

Decanted for 3 hrs, nice flavors & full structure. Well integrated, but showing first signs of age. I'd drink now on this one.

Drinking beautifully. Fruit in background, & structure that kicks ass! Silky smooth, lots of minerality & terroir, making me think of Montalcino!

A little Brett in this wine, but the quality of the fruit shows, with a long, luxurious finish. A very nice wine

Very balanced with wonderful black cherry and raspberry fruit flavors, and solid structure. There's a very subtle kiss of new French oak.

Rich and fleshy, with bursting berry flavors. Fine aromatics, stout structure. Big on the mid palate, and a long finish. At 10 yrs, this wine is better than ever.

Perfect balance of fruit & structure. Tasted fresh & juicy. This is a bold, Rutherford Dust in your face cab, still in great form.

A little aged for me. I think it would be best to drink up if u have more of this one. Has lost a little of its power and fruit, but still better than most.

Tasted much better the second night after opening, showing the proclivity of Diamond Mtn wines to age.

Still fresh and lively, with smooth, silky texture & good fruit. Really expresses the vintage of 06

Simply delicious! A good example of the age worthiness of Brunellos, this 99 could easily pass as a 5 yr old. Beautifull fruit and balance, with a decent length of finish, and an overall flavor that demanded a quick replay.

Lots of acidity. This is a good food wine, with which it comes alive and shows its fruit.

A beautiful wine, illustrative of what a Merlot can be.....big and dense, velvety and smooth, very silky. The fruit flavors are delicious - so glad I bought this, and wish I had more!
