This is the Cabernet Sauvignon that you've been waiting for: Rombauer's Diamond Selection Cabernet Sauvignon. The inaugural reserve vintage was first produced in 1994 and represents the creme de la creme from estate vineyards and top grower vineyards in Stags Leap, Calistoga, Atlas Peak and St. Helena AVAs and each grape passed through an optical sorter to make sure that your bottle of Diamond Selection is 100% perfection. Armed with 17 months in 100% new French oak, Rombauer's Diamond Selection will take you on an unstoppable journey of black cherry, black currant, and a dash of spice. Grab your big bowled glasses and get ready to go to town with the top 1%.
When founders Koerner and Joan Rombauer moved their two children, two horses and five dogs to Napa Valley in 1972, they arrived armed with an appreciation for the intimate relationship between food and wine. Stemming from Koerner’s great aunt Irma, his ancestry lies in the winegrowing region of Rheingau, Germany, where wine is considered an essential complement to a meal. Fully established in 1980, thirty-nine years later, the winery remains owned by second and third-generation members of the family. Our own James and Kevin found John - Rombauer's Export Manager at Prowein - arm in a sling after a fall and an entanglement with some barbed wire! It's fair to say these cooky winemakers have stories aplenty!
