Diamond Creek Vineyards Red Rock Terrace Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

$224.99

Among the original Cult Cabernets, Diamond Creek continues to amaze in 2010 with a trio of wines that must be included in any serious collector's stash as one of the most ageable Cabs in California.  Red Rock Terrace is a warm microclimate, 7 acres of north facing vineyard. The red tinted soil is high in iron content. The wine from Red Rock Terrace is the most accessible and earliest to be really drinkable of all Diamond Creek releases. This Cabernet boasts velvety tannins, rich and well balanced, medium dark ruby color with cherry, mint and black currant flavors.95+ Points Robert Parker:  "The Red Rock Terrace Vineyard consists of seven acres of iron-rich, red soils. The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Red Rock Terrace reveals intense, ripe, impressive creme de cassis and boysenberry fruit notes. Fuller-bodied, richer and more muscular than the Gravelly Meadow, it is stunningly powerful and pure with multiple layers, abundant tannin and structure, and extravagant amounts of fruit and glycerin. Still an infant, this beauty requires 7-10 years of cellaring and should keep for three decades...Definitely on the comeback trail, this iconic winery, which is celebrating 40+ years in Napa Valley, has a resume that includes some of the greatest wines made in Napa during its heyday in the 1970s (the 1974, 1976s and 1978s)."

Iodine and red fruit with a deep mineral and leather quality gives way to cocoa and dried flowers. Great acidity. Keep for another 20.
