    Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Volcanic Hill opens with dusty soil, cloves and fragrant earth scents with a core of red and black cherry preserves, plum pudding, blackcurrant cordial and mocha with touches of cedar chest and potpourri. Very big, rich and decadently fruited, it fills the mouth with powerful fruit and a taut frame of fine-grained tannins plus great freshness, finishing long and perfumed. 96+/100. Date 2020-2040.

Producer

Diamond Creek

In 1968, visionaries Al and Boots Brounstein changed the destiny of Napa Valley wines forever. Ignoring the naysayers and recognising the region’s potential for growing exceptional Single-Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, they ventured to plant Bordeaux varietals while the creditors tried to convince them otherwise. With naught but a borrowed tractor, Al cleared 20 acres of land in the secluded Diamond Mountain AVA, and Diamond Creek was born. Carved out of the mountain, Diamond Creek consists of four distinctly different vineyards – Gravelly Meadow, Lake Vineyard, Red Rock Terrace, and Volcanic Hill – all of which are blessed with a unique microclimate and soil type. While the single vineyard wines are vinified and matured identically, each wine has its own personality, expressing the individuality of the microsites from where they are grown. Now owned by the Rouzard family of world-renowned Maison Louis Roederer, the Brounsteins have found the perfect successors to Diamond Creek: a family with a deep devotion to history and tradition, and a pioneering vision for the future of all its estates.

Region

Napa Valley

This small town north of San Francisco has grown up to be one of California’s most famous wine regions. It is home to opulent Cabernets and sweetly-spiced Zinfandels, grown across many sub-regions including Stags Leap, Rutherford, Oakville and others. Cooling ocean fogs roll in from the Pacific at night and burn off in the summer sunshine, keeping the region cooler than you would expect for its latitude, and help produce some of the best Californian wines. Napa wines have the concentration and structure to age magnificently.
