“Red Rock Terrace, on a north-facing slope of 38°, is cooler than Volcanic Hill, and slightly warmer than Gravelly Meadow. It’s the most immediately appealing of the three Diamond Creek wines in 2003. If I were to add points for terroir character, this would score even higher, as my notes from the blind tasting indicate a ferrous, iron-oxide edge to the tannin (the aspect of the soil that accounts for its distinctive color). The grip of those tannins creates a dry succulence, balancing wild blueberry fruit with lovely intensity. Powerfully mineral, the finish lasts with a tremendous elegance.” (12/2006)

92    Connoisseurs Guide
“Classic components of cassis, loamy earth, pencil lead and nicely balanced oak spice come together in the deep aromas and well-extracted flavors of this solidly varietal bottling, and, while fairly tannic and rather gruff on the palate, the wine is always directed by ample fruit. A serious Cabernet that will both demand and reward genuine patience, it is clearly one for long-term keeping, of ten or more years.” *Two Stars* (8/2006)
