2003 Diamond Creek Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Red Rock Terrace Diamond Mountain
Connoisseurs' Guide to California WinesClassic components of cassis, loamy earth, pencil lead and nicely balanced oak spice come together in the deep aromas and well-extracted flavors of this solidly varietal bottling, and, while fairly tannic and rather gruff on the palate, the wine is always directed by ample fruit. A serious Cabernet that will both demand and reward genuine patience, it is clearly one for long-term keeping, of ten or more years.
