2013 Meritage (Two Jakes) (Aspects)
2013 Meritage (Two Jakes) (Aspects)

Our vineyard on a peninsula jutting into the southeastern corner of Clear Lake is the site of the most remarkable Merlot in the State of California, resembling more a classic Pomerol’s density, depth and masculine tannins, though imparting an unctuous feminine texture. The 2013 was harvested in early October in warm, fair weather which achieved early full ripeness.

Dry Rosé (Two Jakes)
Dry Rosé (Two Jakes)

Every grower is a gambling man. We grow some of the best Merlot in California, but it always pays to hedge your bets. That’s why we developed our own brand featuring me and my Dad, Jake II with whom I built this vineyard from scratch in 1999. By eliminating the middle man, a grower-produced wine can provide a wonderful bargain.

At Diamond Ridge Vineyards, we don’t grow a single white grape. Instead, we produce this delicious dry pink wine from Merlot for when we want something cold and quaffable.

2012 Petite Sirah (Two Jakes)
2012 Petite Sirah (Two Jakes)

This wine is so amazing that sometimes we think we should just grow nothing but Petite Sirah. Although the wine has incredible color and density, the texture is surprisingly soft, round and feminine.

Altitude is good for this variety, which does not fare well in fog, as its thin skin and tightly packed clusters make it prone to rot. In many mountain sites, bright sunlight and water stress lead to extremely hardness, but our cooling afternoon “lake effect” develop and preserve an intense blueberry aroma and prevents field oxidation of anthocyanins, preserving an intense “Purple Haze” appearance.

2011 Merlot (Two Jakes)
2011 Merlot (Two Jakes)

Our vineyard is located in a site with rocky granitic soils that result in a very different expression of Merlot from the typical California profile. The persistent sunny rays at the high altitude impart extravagant color and bright pomegranate aromas with no vegetal aspect. Our proximity to Clear Lake’s afternoon cooling “lake effect” preserves these aromas. While our volcanic soils produce solid, age-worthy tannins which impart amazing ageworthiness.

2012 Cabernet Sauvignon (Two Jakes)
2012 Cabernet Sauvignon (Two Jakes)

Our vineyard on a peninsula jutting into the southeastern corner of Clear Lake is the site of the most extensive commercial Cabernet Sauvignon clonal library in the State of California. Its persistent sunny rays at the high altitude draw from each clone its unique aromatic signature, and the cooling “lake effect” prevents them from volatilizing, preserving a distinct clonal stamp on each. Different clones will develop aromas as diverse as grenadine, cassis, raspberry, carob, Asian spice and tar, with tannins and acidity equally varied.

2011 Cabernet Franc (Two Jakes)
2011 Cabernet Franc (Two Jakes)

The father of Cabernet Sauvignon, this grape is among the most challenging to work with and seldom is bottled as a pure varietal. Its great vigor requires bright sunlight and a limiting soil to prevent excessive fruit shading, but its delicate aromas will also easily burn off.

Diamond Ridge is located in a sunny high altitude site with rocky granitic soils which force Cabernet Franc to put its energy into pushing its roots down into the rock, resulting in a lively mineral energy in the wine’s finish. These conditions develop good color and firm but refined tannins which impart amazing age-worthiness.
