Diamond Creek Vineyards Red Rock Terrace Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

$229

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)."

18/20 (95/100) Насыщенный аромат с сильными тонами шоколада и ванили; есть крем де кассис, черничный джем, кедр, гвоздика, кардамон. Тельное с высокой кислотностью и интенсивными, обволакивающими, шероховатыми танинами. Насыщенное во вкусе с продолжительным шоколадным послевкусием. Молодо. #dfwe2019

Just beautiful. It's hard to believe a wine this young can drink this well, and still age for another 30 years.

Cidy Correa Pedersoli, Diamond Creek's ubiquitous host and all around amazing person, knows how to throw a great pairing together. One of the most historic and consistently highly-rated wines in Napa. Red Rock Terrace is my wife's favorite because she is a lover of earthy expressive wines.
