The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Red Rock Terrace comes from seven acres of the 20-acre vineyard (whereas the Gravelly Meadow emerges from five acres). The terroir is iron-rich, red, rocky soil in contrast to the light, gravelly, ashy soils of the Gravelly Meadow. Super-intense, rich, more backward and powerful than the Gravelly Meadow, this dense purple wine offers up notes of beef blood, crème de cassis, blackberry, licorice and earth. Full-bodied, powerful and incredibly well-balanced, this is wine for 25-30 or more years of aging. In fact, don’t plan on drinking a bottle for at least another 5-8 years. (RP)(12/2016)

Aromas of blackberry, blueberry and warm stone. Full body, very layered. Perfectly fine tannins. Round and dense texture yet perfectly balanced. A pretty and joyous young wine. 537 cases made. Enjoy tasting but better in four or five years. (5/2016)

Diamond Creek’s 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Red Rock Terrace is dark, powerful and mysterious. Red cherry, jam, plum, rose petal and mint are fused together in a deep, unctuous wine endowed with real depth and intensity. Although big and powerful, the Red Rock Terrace has the silkiest and most creamy tannins of these 2013s which gives the wine its relatively – I stress relatively – upfront appeal. (AG) (12/2016)
