Description

98+   Lisa Perrotti-Brown for Wine Advocate
“The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Volcanic Hill is a blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12.5% Merlot, 8.7% Malbec and 2.8% Petit Verdot. Deep garnet-purple colored, it bursts with vibrant scents of wild blueberries, chocolate-covered cherries and boysenberries with hints of sassafras, fragrant earth, vanilla pod and underbrush, plus a waft of crushed rocks. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers fantastic purity and depth, offering firm, grainy tannins to support the bags of earth-laced black fruits, finishing long and mineral laced.” (3/2021)

93    Connoisseurs Guide
“By any standard, a very good and eminently collectable Cabernet that clearly shows its Diamond Creek lineage, the Volcanic Hill bottling is, in this outing and relative to its mates, a little more obvious in its tannins and a tad less polished as a result. It wants for nothing in the way of fruity substance and stuffing, and its curranty varietal bona fides are as solid as solid can be. It is, as are its two companions, a wine meant for the cellar rather than one to drink anytime soon, and there is little doubt in our minds that it will continue to evolve positively for ten to fifteen years and very likely more.” (8/2021)
