Drank in 2007 after 1 hour of decanting. Very Funky Barnyard nose, but in the mouth tasted like mature classed Bordeaux: earth, leather, grilled mushroom, cassis. Really nice wine

Tight, tart and compact, but rich in flavor, with crisp, stemmy black cherry and wild-berry flavors. Turns firmly tannic, with an oaky, earthy aftertaste... Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1998 Diamond Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Gravelly Meadow 750ml

Remarkably elegant, complex, ripe and concentrated, with a sweet plum and cherry accent to the spicy anise, cedar and light oak shadings. With its relatively mild tannins it's tempting now, but worthy of cellaring into 2000.

Supple mountain fruit? It's not something Diamond Creek was known for in the eighties, but they're into it in a big way now. The '95 Gravelly Meadow is full of plum, coffee and mint, giving a lush flavor profile and texture. The only thing that gives away its Diamond Mountain origin is the power of the tannins in the finish. This fabled vineyard site provides a full-bodied yet round wine ready to be enjoyed today.

Tight, tart and compact, but rich in flavor, with crisp, stemmy black cherry and wild-berry flavors. Turns firmly tannic. with an oaky, earthy aftertaste. Needs time. Best from 2004 through 2014.

Toasty warm earth offering lush cherry and boysenberry characteristics. Garnet color with firm tannins, olive and mint ascending a vibe toward Pinot Noir but with a full-blown, pedal to the metal, white knuckle explosion on the tongue!

Earthy and complex - typical of this vineyard - with layers of clay, spice, berry and cherry; long and lingering on the finish. Needs time. Best from 2002.
