Deep red. Overextracted, herbaceous nose of bitter cherry, leather and mint. Aggressively green menthol and herbal flavors overwhelm the wine limited fruit. Rustic, coarse and tough. 77 points Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1987 Diamond Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Gravelly Meadow 750ml


Winemaker's Notes:

Diamond Creek's second coolest microclimate is its 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 its lowest yielding vineyard. The wines are described as 'earthy, cedary, jammy and ripe blackberry with a spicy expansive finish.'
