The Diamond Red Blend was created exclusively by taste with no particular road map in mind. The blend which was inspired by Scarlet O'Hara in Gone with the Wind, is complex, tempestuous, and alluring. The wine is made from a blend of Syrah, Petit Verdot, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, and Malbec sourced from top-notch vineyards in Napa, Sonoma, Lodi, and El Dorado.
