2017 Checkerboard King’s Row Cabernet Sauvignon Diamond Mountain
Checkerboard Kings Row remains an expression of the Aurora Vineyard which is located in a small valley midway up Diamond Mountain on a large knoll at an elevation of 1,200 feet. It’s a similar barrel program and blended to make an earlier drinking wine. This vintage was noted by the winery as luscious, lively, and seamless. Aromas of blue fruit and dried herbs. The body is silky, approachable, and finishes long on the palate.
Unicorns are rare magical creatures only found in dreams and fairytales. Unicorn wines on the other hand, like Checkerboard Vineyards, are only found in the best restaurants and retailers in California. Hidden on Diamond Mountain this small property with only 12 acres planted, delivers expansively rich but well-balanced wines. The state-of-the-art winery started in 2006 with Martha McClellan at the helm. She’s an alumna of some of the finest first-growth Napa wineries; Harlan, Sloan, and Vineyard 7&8. Her precise specifications and careful guidance set the standard for this youthful cult winery.
