Uber concentrated fruit, blackcherry , plum, new oak, jalapeño and mint. For as young as this giant is it was still utterly amazing with a long decant..paired perfect with our wagyu brisket...will be for sure brilliant in years to come..

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Red Rock Terrace is a dark, powerful wine. It is also richer and more immediate than has been the norm here in the past. Bold and racy in the glass with tremendous fruit density, the 2016 is packed with a whole range of super-ripe red cherry and red plum fruit flavors. Spice, floral and licorice overtones add a pretty upper register to this expressive and surprisingly accessible young Diamond Creek Cabernet. Readers won't have to cellar the 2016 too long - that much is clear. The 2016 was done with 120% new oak, which means 100% new in the first year and another 20% new in the second year, which I don't think this wine really needs. That said, the oak is very nicely balanced. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, January 2020)

Earthy and not overly structured. The fruit comes through with nice subtlety and depth at the same time. This is a great California Cab!
