2017 Checkerboard ‘Impetuous’ Cabernet Sauvignon Diamond Mountain
Checkerboard Vineyard is tucked away on Diamond Mountain and up until last year they only produced 2 wines. Both single-vineyard masterpieces made by Bob Levy and Martha McClellan, who both made wines for Harlan and other top producing estates. This Impetuous shows the strength of the mountain fruit with the soft round tannins of 2017. One of the newest editions to the second-growth category. No press needed, it’s a must-have.
