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

"Phil Steinschriber has farmed Diamond Creek's vineyards and made the wines since the early 1990's. Of the estate bottlings. he finds Red Rock to be the most immediately accessible, a wine grown on a north-facing slope in red, iron rich soils. The way the new oak plays into the fruit complexity in 2007 lends it first-growth stature. The small-berry concentration follows through on that promise with a cresendo of flavbor, pure ripe currant that lasts with arich, smoky savor. The structure, depth and character of the wine is classical, a Calfornia original from the 1960s that's buffed to a contemporary gloss. This is a great vintage of Red Rock. "
96 Points

"Awfully good, a wine that strikes you right off the bat s important and complex. It's dry and densly packed in blackberry and cherry pie filling, red currant, licorice and sweet, smoky oak flavors. Very good and rich, with complicated tannins, and soft enough to drink now, although it should age well."

Learn About Diamond Creek Map ItMap It

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. The three distinct soil types on theis 20-acre property produce different single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignons. 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.

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
