Diamond Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Gravelly Meadow 1987
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.'
