A touch herbaceous if not racy, it combines ripe, intense fruit yet is supple and fleshy. Lacks the depth and concentration of the best Red Rock Terrace bottlings, but is still impressive.

Smooth, rich and complex, with a concentrated core of earthy currant, black cherry, herb and toasty oak. Plush textured at first but then the tannins flex their muscles, suggesting a need for cellaring. Long finish. Best from 2007 through 2019.

Wonderful depth, richness and purity of flavor to this young Red Rock, with juicy black cherry, currant, wild berry, plum, cedar, mineral and light oak nuances. Tight and concentrated, it's a superb wine, rich and long on the finish. Best from 2004 through 2018.

Cedar and cigar box nuances with expansive, young fruit. Pretty hard to believe it was bottled in '89. These wines are built for age. Tasting is believing - low in acidity with terraced structure reminiscent of Merlot in smoothness and suppleness.

The 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon Red Rock Terrace, usually the most accessible of the Diamond Creek Cabernets, possesses earthiness, a distinct mintiness, and astringent tannin in the finish. The bouquet reveals classic notes of cassis intermixed with tobacco leaf, cedar, and licorice. The Cabernet is medium-bodied, but excessively tannic.

...indeed, pretty - [it] maintains its girlish form despite relatively rapid aging... very much in the front of the mouth... appear[s] to flatter the palate's vanity while blithely begging deepr issues... known for being very extracted, concentrated wine...
