Diamond Creek Red Rock Terrace Cabernet Sauvignon 2000
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Diamond Mountain District|
Rich, ripe and fragrant, with the essence of spice, cedar, black cherry, black raspberry, cola, strawberries, herbs, licorice, tar and tobacco-all wrapped up in a neatly bound, yet generous package that delivers mounds of pleasure. Muscular with firm acidity, it's got a punch that will keep it long-lived for the cellar.
Smooth, rich and complex, with a concentrated core of earthy currant, black cherry, herb and toasty oak. Plush textured at first but then the tannins flex their muscles, suggesting a need for cellaring. Long finish. Best from 2004 through 2014.
