2010 Diamond Creek "Red Rock Terrace" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1142746 96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark A stunning, vivid wine, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Red Rock Terrace jumps from the glass with exotic red-toned fruit. Pomegranate, plum, mint and floral notes meld together in a rich, resonant wine endowed with tons of flesh and pure volume. The combination of fruit, acidity and structure is so divine that the Red Rock could be enjoyed today, although ideally it is best cellared for at least another decade or so. (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2014)

96 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Generally warmer than Gravelly Meadow, Red Rock is a terraced hillside facing north across the Diamond Creek lagoon toward Volcanic Hill. It’s the richest and fattest of the three wines in 2010, a bold stroke of black fruit across the palate. Sweet, plummy and generously oaked, this wine’s baby fat doesn’t manage to completely hide its formidable structure. The detail in the tannins develops with air, in a raw silk texture and scents of conifer. Contrast that with high notes of jasmine and ginger root and the complexities begin to emerge.

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The Red Rock Terrace Vineyard consists of seven acres of iron-rich, red soils. The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Red Rock Terrace reveals intense, ripe, impressive creme de cassis and boysenberry fruit notes. Fuller-bodied, richer and more muscular than the Gravelly Meadow, it is stunningly powerful and pure with multiple layers, abundant tannin and structure, and extravagant amounts of fruit and glycerin. Still an infant, this beauty requires 7-10 years of cellaring and should keep for three decades. (RP) 95+ Inner quote mark (10/2013)

95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark You’ll find the hard tannins associated with Diamond Creek’s Cabs, as well as an iodine, metallic brittleness to this wine. The combination of the two makes this as tough as any young Napa Valley Cabernet could be. However, the core is potent, suggesting intensely concentrated black currants and blackberries, reduced to their elemental essence. Do not touch this wine before 2020, and it should still be going strong in 2030. *Cellar Selection* Inner quote mark (12/2013)

94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Aromas of blueberries and minerals follow through to a full body with firm tannins and a juicy finish. Hints of iron and clay. A balanced, reserved red. Shows the tradition and class of the vineyard. Better in 2015. Inner quote mark (5/2014)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Dry and cedary, with a strong presence of wood and dill that is reminiscent of a classified-growth Bordeaux. Hardly flashy, this is detailed and balanced, featuring deep flavors of dried currant, loamy earth and minty anise, framed by fine-grain tannins that lend this a firm backbone. Best from 2015 through 2030. (JL) Inner quote mark (11/2015)
