DIAMOND CREEK DIAMOND CREEK - Cabernet Sauvignon Red Rock Terrace - 2012

DIAMOND CREEK Cabernet Sauvignon Red Rock Terrace 2012

See the wine detail page

96 Points

The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Red Rock Terrace, from a seven-acre vineyard compared to the eight acres of Volcanic Hill, exhibits a saturated purple color, gorgeous crème de cassis and blueberry notes, underlying minerality, stunning full-bodied opulence, sweet tannin and, again, great concentration and balance. This is another 25- to 30-year wine that will hit its peak in about a decade. Nevertheless, it’s accessible already.
