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.

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.

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.

This well-made '88 boasts smoke, rain forest and pomegranate aromas. These Diamond Creek wines need to be tasted to be believed! Brick in color and slightly smoky with raspberry and wildberry flavors that carry through.

An excellent '88, with ripe cherry and currant, pretty spice shadings, firm but ripe tannins and, most importantly, a long and lingering finish.

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.
