Diamond Creek, California's first "Cabernet only" estate vineyard, was established in 1968. Visionary pioneer, Al Brounstein, defied modern convention and planted Bordeaux varietals on secluded Diamond Mountain. The three distinct soil types on theis 20-acre property produce different single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignons. Light ash solid of Volcanic Hill is in sharp contrast to the iron-rich Red Rock Terrace and the pebbly Gravelly Meadow. Each year, the estate produces a small amount of long lived wines that are revered by connoisseurs the world over.
This 6 Pack contains 2 bottles of each:
Diamond Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Gravelly Meadow 2017
95 Points James Suckling ... Classic Gravelly on the nose with plums, currants and hot stones, as well as spices. Medium body, ultra-fine tannins and a beautiful, delicious finish. Purity and finesse. Drink or hold.
Diamond Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Red Rock Terrace 2017
97 Points James Suckling ... This is riper and richer than the other two single-vineyard reds from here with more density on the palate and a beautiful, velvety texture. It’s full and beautiful. Extremely long and luscious, but still reserved and not too flamboyant. Classic Red Rock Terrace. Give it a few years to come together completely.
Diamond Cabernet Sauvignon Creek Volcanic Hill 2017
96 Points James Suckling ... Beautiful aromas of brambleberries and blueberries with some conifer and mushrooms. Floral, too. Medium to full body, very fine tannins and succulent fruit and spices. Extremely long and subtle. Glorious and refined now, but will be better with age. Try after 2022.
