Wine Review: This Cabernet Sauvignon from Diamond Creek is Tremendous! It is slightly opaque and dark red colored. It opens with a very inviting black cherry bouquet with hints of black currant. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, very nicely balanced and super smooth. The flavor profile is a delicious black cherry and black currant blend with nicely integrated gentle minerality and oak. The finish is dry and its flavors and refined tannins sail away for a very long time. I would pair this Excellent wine with a filet mignon. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: 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."
