  • About this winery

    Diamond Creek is a true California legend: rare (only 1,500 total cases of three 'regular' bottlings, with tiny additional quantities from the miniscule Lake vineyard in favorable vintages), expensive, and talked or written about much more often than actually tasted. Furthermore, even the most rabid devotees of Napa cab have never seen the place - and they never will, no matter how many times they traverse Highway 29 or the Silverado Trail. In fact "Napa Valley" almost seems a silly appellation...

    April 2015

    Impressive aromas of clay, dust and blueberries. Lots of blackcurrants, too. Pure fruit. Full body, velvety and soft cashmere-textured tannins. It’s very structured. Need at least five to six years to come together but a fabulous wine. Greatest Red Rock ever?

    Robert Parker, December 2015

    The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Red Rock Terrace, from a seven-acre vineyard compared to the eight acres of Volcanic Hill, exhibits a saturated purple color, gorgeous crème de cassis and blueberry notes, underlying minerality, stunning full-bodied opulence, sweet tannin and, again, great concentration and balance. This is another 25- to 30-year wine that will hit its peak in about a decade. Nevertheless, it’s accessible already.

    Antonio Galloni, October 2015

    The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Red Rock Terrace is a deep, layered wine. Red cherry jam, pomegranate, plums, spices, mint and sweet spices open up in the glass. Unusually flashy and fruit-driven but with plenty of underlying tannin, the 2012 should drink well relatively early by Diamond Creek standards. The Red Rock Terrace is the most approachable of the Diamond Creek 2012s.
