2004 Diamond Creek "Volcanic Hill" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1024845 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Volcanic Hill is the most primordial, concentrated, masculine and meaty wine of this trio. It possesses surreal concentration as well as a stunningly opaque ruby/purple color, and wonderfully sweet tannin. Its layers of concentration and richness eclipse the more elegant, perfumed Gravelly Meadow and more solidly constructed Red Rock Terrace. Like its siblings, it remains ten years away from full maturity. (RP) Inner quote mark (4/2014)

Outer quote mark Soft and silken, Volcanic Hill is the most forward of the three Diamond Creek wines in 2004. It's packed with black cherry flavor and exotic spice, red plum and fraises des bois adding to the wild complexity. Already sleek, it needs time for the earthy density of the tannin to absorb the wood. It should age with grace. *Year's Best 2007* Inner quote mark (12/2007)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Opens with fabulous blackberry jam, mocha, cinamonny spice, oak, vanilla and sweet herb aromas. Then turns intense and concentrated, with cherry-blackberry and chocolate flavors smothered in big, smooth tannins. Really high quality. Inner quote mark (8/2004)

92-94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Firm, tight and concentrated, the earthy currant and wild berry flavors are hidden behind a wall of rich tannins, giving it excellent structure. Holds a tight focus on the finish. Inner quote mark (5/2005)

91 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark The most open and accessible of the Diamond Creek bunch, the bottling from Volcanic Hill sports suggestions of ripe berries along with the usual cassis and leans a little more to ripeness than either of its mates. It too is tannic, but not to quite the same measure, and its direct and somewhat juicier style makes for easy predictions that it will be the earliest maturing of this impressive trio. *Two Stars* Inner quote mark (8/2007)
