Probably the most expensive wines I'll ever have. It was definitely worth the other guy's money. :) Read more

This really evolved well from it's initial showing of rusty mineral, faded floral and soft black olive tones to a fresh, sweet nose of black currant, cigar box and briary notes with a lovely accent of eucalyptus. In the mouth his remained lean but was wonderfully fresh with a clean, brisk feel and fine focus. Green herb and green tobacco notes help define the zesty red currant fruits. 12.5% alcohol and brilliant! This perfectly exhibits why I prefer these older California Cabernet to Bordeaux, ignoring for the moment the crazy price differential. This is perhaps a bit simple but it remains fresh, brilliantly balanced, and simply a joy to drink. 2009-2015 94pts.

    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

    Our second coolest microclimate is our five-acre Gravelly Meadow vineyard. Originally a prehistoric river bed, this stony, gravelly soil drains rapidly and the vines struggle for moisture.Gravelly Meadow is our lowest yielding vineyard. The wines

    Wine & Spirits ReviewGravelly Meadow offers full-on power in 2003, its supple, succulent texture packing truffles and earthiness into its flavor. Its generous dark fruit and bittersweet chocolate tannin balances the alcohol richness. Air lengthens the flavors, bringing out the elegance and complexity in the wine-an indication of the wine's potential development over the next two decades.

    An intense, ruggedly tannic style that packs in distinctive earthy currant, blackberry, cedar and wild berry flavors before the tannins wrap it up tightly. Needs cellaring... Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2001 Diamond Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Gravelly Meadow 750ml

    Wine Spectator ReviewElegant but quite complete, with ripe cherry, sage, spice and berry flavors. Youthful, long and vibrant. Best from 2002 through 2010.

    The 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon Gravelly Meadow's old mushroom and stinky saddle leather characteristics obliterate Cabernet's black currant, cedary, spice box notes. The finish reveals hard, astringent tannin, suggesting the wine will dry out ... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

    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.

    Simply delicious, with an amazing amount of fruit complexity and tiers of currant, black cherry, plum and spice. Remarkably rich and concentrated on the finish. Better than when tasted upon release, last year.
