Diamond Creek Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Red Rock Terrace 2002

Member Review by Gold Medal Wine Club:

This is a Gold Medal Wine Club Diamond Series selection. 94 Points, The Wine News ─ “Distinctive nose of briary bramble berry, accented with bright blueberry and loamy earthiness. Deeply flavored and viscous with ripe, medium-full tannins, this is a muscular Cabernet brimming with concentrated dark berry-cassis fruit; finishes with subtle notes of white chocolate and white pepper.” Winemaker John R. Gibson’s comments ─ “At Andrew Geoffrey we ferment and barrel each of the clones separately, without regard to quotas for production. Each varietal clone is kept separate and allowed to mature in oak barrels for at least eight months before blending. There are no formulas for Andrew Geoffrey wine. The blend varies year to year, and will always be a Diamond Mountain District, Cabernet Sauvignon based wine. Simply put, whether it be one case or two thousand cases, we will only allow the highest quality wine be bottled as Andrew Geoffrey Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon.”

Red Rock Winery:
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.
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

The 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Red Rock Terrace (7 acres) boasts a pure nose of smoky creme de cassis and burning embers. Tightly knit in the mouth, with sweet fruit, a hint of vanilla, and the oak kept well in the background, it possesses medium to full body, a beautiful texture, and a long, pure finish. For me, the tightest of the three, but it is also impressive as well as outstanding. With a long finish, this pure wine needs 3-5 years of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2020+.
