Diamond Creek Vh Cabernet Sauvignon 1986

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

It is interesting that in all my tastings of Diamond Creek Cabernets from the seventies and early eighties, I never seemed to have a problem with either bottle variation or disappointing performances. In such vintages as 1974, 1975, 1976, 1977, and 1... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1986 Diamond Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Volcanic Hill 750ml

Established in 1997, Diamond Creek Estate is an award winning family owned and operated vineyard and olive grove. Diamond Creek Estate is situated on the northern slopes of Mittagong, around 120 kms south of Sydney, in the Southern Highlands region of New South Wales. The property for many years was dairy country, enjoys rich basalt soil, northern sun and although at an altitude of 680 metres, it has an unique topography, which leaves it relatively immune from frost. This creates an ideal microclimate for cultivating premium quality, cool climate wine grapes and the finest olives for extra virgin olive oil. The vineyard occupies around 15 acres and a similar area is dedicated to olive trees. The vines are subject to intensive management for improvement, hand pruned and leaf-plucked as required. They are personally tended, cropped for optimised yields to produce premium quality cool climate wine grapes. Diamond Creek Estate Wines are produced only from estate grown grapes. The region, although the newest recognized geographical indication, is fast being acknowledged as a premium cool climate area and this is consistent with our objective to produce first class wines that will compete with any in Australia and overseas.

Austere, even at this age. Crisp style, with firm currant, spice, cedar and sage notes. Clearly a restrained, backward wine that needs more time... Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1985 Diamond Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Volcanic Hill 750ml

...the wine possesses more fruit and ripeness, as well as an elegant, medium-bodied personality... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1985 Diamond Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Gravelly Meadow 750ml

Has an intriguing array of flavors in a stylish, elegant package. The cedar, cherry, cassis, vanilla and olive flavors are woven together in a very elegant package. The finish is long and subtle, lingering on and on. Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1985 Diamond Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Red Rock Terrace 750ml
