Winemaker's Notes

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."

Critical Acclaim

"The color is a murky, ruby/purple, and the nose reluctantly offers up jammy red and blackcurrant scents, along with mineral and vanillin notes. Sweet, ripe, full-bodied, but ferociously tannic, this is a wine to lay away for at least a decade.

Range: 90-92 Points"
92 Points

"A shade more supple and less flavorful, but nonetheless a complex, tightly wound, remarkably fruity wine."

Diamond Creek, California's first "Cabernet only" estate vineyard, was established in 1968. Visionary pioneer, Al Brounstein, defied modern convetion and planted Bordeaux varietals on secluded Diamond Mountain.

Light ash soild of Volcanic Hill is in sharp contrast to the iron-rich Red Rock Terrace and the pebbly Gravelly Meadow. Each year, the estate produces a small amount of long-lived wines that are revered by connoisseurs the world over.

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...
