A masterful blend from our “Shine On You Crazy Diamond” and “Light My Fire” rock blocks

Continuing the tradition of the rock mash-up of Cliff Lede Vineyards’ most expressive vineyard sites, we are proud to debut Diamond Fire. This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon features a blend of “Shine On You Crazy Diamond” from our prized Poetry Vineyard and our home Twin Peaks Vineyard’s “Light My Fire” blocks. The wine sparkles with facets of blackberry, cassis and dark chocolate, while rocking a nuanced minerality that is unmistakably Stags Leap District. The power and finesse, core characteristics of the appellation, burn bright in this distinctive wine.
Wine is 100% estate grown and bottled
Winemaker, Cliff Lede Vineyards
Christopher spent his first summers in Napa doing cellar internships at Cain Vineyards and Blankiet Estate and doing irrigation management for vineyards all over Napa and Sonoma. In 2006, Christopher brought his tireless work ethic and commitment to excellence to Colgin Cellars. During Christopher's 5 year tenure as Assistant Winemaker, Colgin received 7 perfect 100 point ratings from renowned wine critic Robert Parker Jr. The philosophy at Colgin was low yield farming and no compromise winemaking. It was an inspiring place to work. It is that same lofty philosophy that led Christopher to Cliff Lede Vineyards in the summer of 2012.
