The 1995 vintage of this wine was ranked #7 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 1998
Red Rock Terrace Cabernet Sauvignon is a medium dark ruby color with cherry, mint and black currant flavors. It has velvety tannins, rich and well balanced. The wine from Red Rock Terrace is the most accessible and earliest drinkable of all Diamond Creek wines.
Rich, creamy and layered, with a complex mix of plum, wild berry, mineral and espresso flavors. As smooth-textured as this gets early on, with a wonderful finish that sails on. Seductive and alluring. Drink now through 2024. 406 cases made.
Tastes fairly straightforward now, with frest, vigorous blackberry, blueberry, cherry, anise and mocha flavors that have a minerally bite. The tannins are tough, gritty and dry, as befits a young Cabernet grown on Diamond Mountain. Needs time, and lots of it. Hold until after 2016, at least.
