Diamond Creek Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Red Rock Terrace 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Our prize offering, the ultra premium Claret, sports a label that honors the first Cabernet blended in a Bordeaux style by Gustave Niebaum in 1910. Claret is a term originally coined by the British to describe Cabernet-based wines. This Cabernet, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec blend is alluring and sophisticated; it is memorably lush with a tapestry of smooth tannins and succulent flavors of wild berries, plum and anise.

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.

The color of the wine is deep garnet, with brighter ruby along the edges. The nose is a pleasant combination of leather, raisin, a hint of mint and some floral notes dancing around the perimeter. The taste is wonderfully fruit forward, with some nice ripe berries and a hint of tartness that quickly transitions into some dried herbs and a bit of spice midpalate. The bright tannins then emerge, supporting the long, dry finish. See my full review on my blog here: http://allaloneonaplanetfullofpeople.blogspot.com/2013/02/2010-coppola-claret.html

A nice wine for everyday drinking. Recently returned from San Francisco where they get $32 per bottle, here in Washington, it's $15 go figure. This is a moderate grape flavor with an apparant tastes of raisin. The finish is ok with a nice feeling tannin reaction.

Good wine for the price. Though there are better cabs if you wanted to splurge an extra couple of bucks.

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." - Winery

Aromas of cassis and licorice with hints of leather precede a rich, velvety-textured palate of red fruit jam and a sweet touch of toasty oak on the long finish.

Austere, with a reduced earthy aroma, but also a core of black cherry syrup, anise, cassis and earthy mineral flavors that turn dry and tannic on the finish

Red Diamond Wines are easy drinking, every day wines. Made in Washington, their wines are affordable enough to stock up by the case load.

A perfectly balanced and elegantly textured wine with supple tannins, rich fruit concentration and alluring notes of spice and wood.
