2004 Diamond Creek Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Red Rock Terrace Diamond Mountain
Connoisseurs' Guide to California WinesDeep and keenly defined fruit sits at the heart of this complex and impressively extracted young Cabernet, and, even if toughened just now by its undisguised tannins, the wine effortlessly conveys compelling impressions of layering and real range with its fine juxtapositioning of vanilla, cassis, black olives and loamy soil spice. It is perfectly ripened with nary the least hint of excess, and it stands as a classic varietal working whose future is as sure as sure gets.
