Owners, Bill and Dawnine Dyer bring the rich history and intense flavors of Diamond Mountain Cabernet to life. The boutique Napa Valley winery in the Diamond Mountain District combines their expertise and experience in one wine- Dyer Vineyard, Diamond Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon– a celebration of California’s storied wine-making history. Bill and Dawnine’s unique perspective and knowledge of wine derives from decades of winemaking, both in the prestigious Napa Valley and around the world.
Together they represent more than 80 years of experience in the wine industry. In 1996, they planted Dyer Vineyard and started Dyer Straits Wine Co with the goal of bringing focus on the exceptional terroir and extraordinary wines of Napa Valley’s “jewel” on Diamond Mountain.
Both the 2017 and 2018 Cabernets are up for grabs today. Individually, they’re both fantastic – though they couldn’t be more different at this stage. I’d argue the 2017 is drinking a little bit better at this point, though both have really bright futures ahead. Galloni raved, writing, “The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is gorgeous. Bold, lush, and voluptuous in the glass, the 2017 Cabernet is an example of the vintage at its very best.” For the 2018 vintage, flush with a 96-point score of its own he wrote, “So many 2018s are succulent and open-knit, but the Dyer Cabernet is far from that. The aromatics alone are beguiling.
These are two special, small-lot artisanal Cabernet Sauvignons from one of the top dogs on Diamond Mountain. We have 36 btls of each vintage to go around… don’t wait too long!

96 Points, Vinous (2018 Cab)
“The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon is a bold, pungent wine. So many 2018s are succulent and open-knit, but the Dyer Cabernet is far from that. The aromatics alone are beguiling. Lavender, sage, licorice, and inky blue/purplish fruit all come alive in the glass. Readers will find a beautifully complex, savory Cabernet full of character.”
94 Points, Vinous (2017 Cab)
“The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is gorgeous. Bold, lush, and voluptuous in the glass, the 2017 Cabernet is an example of the vintage at its very best. In 2017, Dyer’s Cabernet is a bitch richer and darker than it usually is, and yet the wine retains its mid-weight sense of structure. There is so much to look forward to.”
