1984 Diamond Creek "Volcanic Hill" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #900398 94 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 1984s appear to be the last of the big, bold, full-bodied, super-concentrated Diamond Creek. The wines produced after 1984 have been more polite and oenologically correct. What a shame! The enormous 1984 displays no signs of age in its dark, saturated ruby/purple color. The nose exhibits some evolution, with cedar, leather, and jammy fruit scents beginning to emerge. Still frightfully tannic, full-bodied, and highly extracted, this backward, chewy wine is one of the slowest evolving 1984s. (RP) Inner quote mark (8/1994)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A tremendous wine. Ripe, vibrant and fruity, with cherry, currant, anise, sage and cedar. Intensely concentrated, with a long and lingering finish. (JL) Inner quote mark (6/1998)

K&L Notes

Maverick grower Al Brounstein first established Diamond Creek on the secluded Diamond Mountain in 1968. Devoted entirely to Bordeaux varietals, Diamond Creek has established itself as a source for fine fruit and, in turn, fine wine. Often rustic, tight and tannic in youth, these wines round out with age; many vintages have required decades to come together.
