Diamond Creek Cabernet Sauvignon 2001

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

A dark, rich, immensely concentrated wine, with tiers of currant, anise, blackberry, fresh earth and cedary oak that pack in lots of flavor. Well-structured with firm tannins and lively acidity. Needs time. Best from 2006 through 2014. Tasted twice, ... Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2001 Diamond Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Volcanic Hill 750ml

Established in 1997, Diamond Creek Estate is an award winning family owned and operated vineyard and olive grove. Diamond Creek Estate is situated on the northern slopes of Mittagong, around 120 kms south of Sydney, in the Southern Highlands region of New South Wales. The property for many years was dairy country, enjoys rich basalt soil, northern sun and although at an altitude of 680 metres, it has an unique topography, which leaves it relatively immune from frost. This creates an ideal microclimate for cultivating premium quality, cool climate wine grapes and the finest olives for extra virgin olive oil. The vineyard occupies around 15 acres and a similar area is dedicated to olive trees. The vines are subject to intensive management for improvement, hand pruned and leaf-plucked as required. They are personally tended, cropped for optimised yields to produce premium quality cool climate wine grapes. Diamond Creek Estate Wines are produced only from estate grown grapes. The region, although the newest recognized geographical indication, is fast being acknowledged as a premium cool climate area and this is consistent with our objective to produce first class wines that will compete with any in Australia and overseas.

An austere, rustic style that veers from ripe cherry and plum fruit to dry, chewy, gritty tannins, finishing with a mouth-puckering aftertaste and a twinge of bitterness. Fans of bare-knuckle Cabernet will find this most pleasing... Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2001 Diamond Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Red Rock Terrace 750ml
