Description

94    James Suckling
“A solid wine with a classic Napa Valley profile, with berries, minerals, mint, and lightly toasted oak. Full and very silky, long and beautiful. I love the core of fruit in this. Excellent, but give this a couple of more years.” (4/2011)

94    Wine & Spirits
“Volcanic Hill, a white slope facing south, creates the most generous wine of Diamond Creek’s estate vineyards. Now that more than half the slope has been replanted, that generosity is emphasized by the exuberance the younger vines bring to the blend, though the wine is also insanely tannic. It opens with floral scents of violets and builds to a rich intensity of dark fruit and soil-driven tannin. The richness of 2007 is well suited to the character of Volcanic Hill.” (12/2010)

94    Wine Enthusiast
“The longer this wine breathes in the glass the better it gets. At first sip, it’s obviously a very good wine, richly tannic and deeply impressive in blackberries, cassis and oak, with a firm minerality that grounds it. But as it warms and airs, the fascinating palate begins to unfold. Will age effortless for many years.” (3/2011)
