Diamond Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Red Rock Terrace 2017
Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot. Albert Jack Brounstein created Diamond Creek in 1968 with his purchase of 79 acres in the Diamond Creek canyon. The stated goal of Diamond Creek was to display the differences in the terroirs and micro climates found in each unique, vineyard site; Volcanic Hill, Gravelly Meadow, Red Rock Terrace and Lake Vineyards. Al's desire to create multiple single vineyard wines from Diamond Creek was, and still is, unique to Napa Valley. Red Rock Terrace, a warm microclimate, is seven acres of north facing vineyard. The red tinted soil is high in iron content which makes it the most accessible and earliest drinkable of their wines. Red Rock Terrace is all velvety tannins, rich and well balanced, medium dark ruby color with cherry, mint and black currant flavors.
