Diamond Creek Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Red Rock Terrace 1999
Red Rock Terrace, a warm microclimate, is 7 acres of north facing vineyard. The red tinted soil is high in iron content. The wine from Red Rock Terrace is the most accessible and earliest drinkable of all our wines. Our winemaker describes Red Rock Terrace as “having velvety tannins, rich and well balanced, medium dark ruby color with cherry, mint and black currant flavors.”
Over the past decade Red Rock has gained an enviable reputation for producing superb ultra premium wines. They are handcrafted on the estate from vines that creep up the side of a dormant volcano west of Geelong. The mineral-rich soil, low rainfall and cool climate result in a unique terroir which, when coupled with sensitive winemaking, yields distinctly individual wines with power and finesse.

...Medicinal aromas of blackberry, black cherry, licorice and mint, along with a suggestion of raw oak. Dense but quite dry in the middle, with strong mineral character. Has length, but the tannins are dusty and a bit overwhelming. Winemaker Phil Ste... Stephen Tanzers IWC.
