The Constants produced their first estate wine from Diamond Mountain Vineyard in 1995. The wine was heralded by James Laube in the Wine Spectator as "a new, can't miss Cabernet…about as close to a sure thing as it gets in wine." After tasting three vintages, Laube concluded: "this vineyard is able to produce stunning wines on a consistent basis." The 2010 is the Constant's FIFTEENTH vintage produced in small quantities at the estate's winery at the peak of Diamond Mountain Vineyard in the Napa Valley. The vineyard is probably Napa's highest oldest vineyard.
Tastings take place in our pool house with glass doors that open to a view of 4 counties and the valley floor belowMusic in Tasting Room: Piped in from a music system
