User Reviews for Diamond Creek Volcanic Hill Cabernet

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Volcanic Hill comes from 8 acres planted in the white tufa/volcanic soils that make a sharp contrast with the red, iron-rich soils of Red Rock Terrace and the gravel-filled soils of Gravelly Meadow. This cuvee tends to be the most explosive and richest of the Diamond Creek Cabs. The deep ruby/purple-tinged 2010 Volcanic Hill is more restrained and reserved on the nose. That restraint is unleashed in the mouth as this is the richest, fullest-bodied and most concentrated of this trio. Lots of blackberry, cassis, smoke and meaty barbecue notes can be found in this titan of a Cabernet Sauvignon. The finish is very long. Forget this 2010 for 8-10 years and drink it over the following 30+...96+" WA 10/13 "Definitely on the comeback trail, this iconic winery, which is celebrating 40+ years in Napa Valley, has a resume that includes some of the greatest wines made in Napa during its heyday in the 1970s (the 1974, 1976s and 1978s).
