Diamond Creek Red Rock Terrace Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
Red Rock Terrace, a warm microclimate, is 7 acres of north facing vineyard. The red tinted soil is high in iron content. The wine from Red Rock Terrace is the most accessible and earliest drinkable of all our wines. Our winemaker describes Red Rock Terrace as "having velvety tannins, rich and well balanced, medium dark ruby color with cherry, mint and black currant flavors."
Intense, with firm tannins wrapped around dried currant, mineral, pebble and dusty sagelike flavors that turn herbal and tannic. Drink now through 2012. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 430 cases made.
