Bill and Dawnine Dyer are no strangers to the California wine scene: Bill spent 20 years with Sterling Vineyards and has consulted at Miramar Torres Estate in the Russian River Valley, Sodaro Winery and Frogs’ Leap Winery in Napa Valley, as well as Church & State Winery and Burrowing Owl Vineyards in British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley; Dawnine Dyer spent 25 years as the winemaker at Domaine Chandon as well as making the first 8 vintages at Sodaro. Between them, Bill and and Dawnine have degrees in Biology, Enology and Philosophy. They planted the 2.3-hectare Dyer Vineyard on Diamond Mountain in 1993, producing the first vintage in 1996. The Dyer wines are the ultimate expression of the Diamond Mountain's volcanic soils.

The 2017 Dyer Diamond Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon is a remarkable wine given the extreme heat spikes experienced during the vintage. With 5 years of bottle age, it has integrated exceptionally well, showing the class and power of Diamond Mountain’s volcanic soils. Deep ruby color with gorgeous aromas of cassis, blueberries, leather, cedar and dried flowers. The tannins have softened and begun to meld back into the wine letting the firm mineral core propel the fruit flavors into a powerful, complex and nuanced finish. An amazing effort by a top-tier producer in a challenging vintage.
