Editorial Reviews for Diamond Creek Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Red Rock Terrace
While not terribly aromatic, this does show a nice balance of oak-derived spice notes, slightly herbal and earth-framed black raspberry and cassis notes, and an intriguing floral element. Nicely scaled, this has a rich edge but is still medium-bodied with lively acidity and soft, velvety tannins. There’s a nice core of fleshy blackberry fruit along with a little meaty edge that drives to a slightly drying, modest finish. This is a really finely textured wine, with a nice balance of flavor that doesn’t hit you over the head and ends with some refreshing structure. 87pts
Very rich and flavorful with nice fruit and tannins. This is one of my go-to wines that I always have a few bottles in the cellar. Very consistently excellent from vintage to vintage. Great with grilled beef. Over the last few years the price on this has dropped from around $20 to under $13 at some of the big retailers, making it a really good bargain.
decent, not tannic. good value
Full bodied dry red, medium body. Good value.
Full bodied. Not too oaky. Fruity and light peppery end.
External Reviews for Diamond Creek Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Red Rock Terrace
Ripe, with black cherry, blackberry, eucalyptus and earth flavors. The tannins are soft and chewy, lingering nicely on the finish. Drink now through 2006.
This bright Cabernet reveals deep fruit flavors of blackberry and blueberry. Coppola's Claret is a rich, full-bodied Cabernet with enticing overtones of spice and oak. This wine ends in a delightful long finish. Claret makes for a delicious complement to any red meat dish.
A chocolatey wine with a deep red color, dark plummy fruits, and a nice dose of warm baking spices on the finish. Silky-smooth tannins give it a great friendly structure.
Offers broad aromas of sandalwood, spice, and red currants followed by layers of engaging black currant, berry, and dark chocolate flavors. Hints of sweet vanilla framed by luxurious, elegant tannins highlight the wine's lengthy finish.
Smooth texture, garnet color, mocha aroma, wild berry and anise flavors highlight this rich Cabernet from Coppola.
The cornerstone of Coppola's Diamond Collection, this Cabernet-based blend is hearty and full-flavored, but very soft on the palate. Deep black fruit and spice notes abound, making this a great easy-drinking red for burgers, pulled pork or goulash.
Claret is the old British term for the wines of Bordeaux. This wine, the first such from Francis Ford Coppola's Sonoma County winery, is a good buy. It's a bit rustic, but offers smooth flavors of blackberries, currants and chocolate.
Not yet reviewed; 2008 vintage rated 95 points by Wine & Spirits: This wine’s dark, curranty tension captures Red Rock’s cooler, northern exposure. It takes the rich, saturated flavors of classic Napa Valley cabernet in a fresh direction; a walk in the woods harvesting berries and morels. The finesse of the tannins combines with the zesty cool of the fruit to trigger all sorts of pleasure receptors in the brain. This is elegant and hard to resist, though it will reward a decade of patient cellaring.
