Lot #359. Diamond Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Red Rock Terrace 2003

Description: Consists of 6 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 94 WSM.
"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." Wine & Spirits Magazine, Dec 2006
Provenance: The Chantre Cellar
Notes: 2 Very lightly scuffed labels.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $1,000
