Vintage: 2003 07/02/2014

Of the three outstanding new Cabernets from Diamond Creek this particular bottling is the most backward and slow-to-unfold of the bunch. With dense highly extracted curranty fruit as its major theme it slowly opens to exhibit finely placed oak rich loamy highlights and touches of stony soil in its expansive nose. Its youthful deeply filled convincingly complex flavors follow suit and are underpinned by puckery tannins that need some time to resolve. This is not a wine for drinking anytime

Vintage: 1998 05/18/2011

Intense copper hue with a light garnet ring surrounding what seems to be a dense and well-knit nose of cinnamon and clove. A fine example of delicacy co-existing with intensity. Light tannins give just enough grip to the Bordeaux flavors and warm tobacco structure.

Vintage: 1998 05/18/2011

Firm and tightly structured at this stage, giving just a peek at its dense, rich core of earthy currant, anise, mineral and berry flavors before the tannins weigh in and wrap up the finish. Cellaring into 2002 is recommended, and it should easily age into 2012.

Deep opaque purple. Moderately full-bodied. Highly extracted. Moderately tannic. Minerals, flint, black fruits. Lean and steely with a dry palate. Firm finish.

This weighty quaff will tyrannize and persuade you, all at the same time. Percolating with truffles, cedar and eucalyptus, some soft tannin that finish with a full bodied, bold richness and glycerine. Offering a smoky, chocolaty, unrelenting ending

Winemaker's Notes:

The vintage was very kind to hillside wines. The heat provided as much ripeness as necessary to fully ripen tannin while the elevation helped circumvent the extremes of the strongest temperature spikes. This true ripeness manifests itself in a saturated black/garnet hue with opening notes of classic Cab character: scorched earth, blueberries, sweet tobacco and black currants. There's a sweetness to the nose that follows through on the palate with more red, blue and black fruit flavors, sweet cream, pain grille and cassis. The structure of the site comes up only in the very end to help prolong the finish and give focus to the perfectly round fruit. Cabernet Sauvignon (79%), Syrah (11%), Petit verdot (4%), Cabernet franc (3%) Malbec (2%), Merlot (1%)
