Winemaker Notes

The second coolest microclimate is Diamond Creek's five-acre Gravelly Meadow vineyard. Originally a prehistoric river bed, this stony, gravelly soil drains rapidly and the vines struggle for moisture.

Gravelly Meadow is Diamond Creek's lowest yielding vineyard. The wines are described as "earthy, cedary, jammy and ripe blackberry with a spicy expansive finish."

Critical Acclaim

RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Tasted at the Decanter Fine Wine Encounter in London. This has a sprightly wild strawberry and cranberry nose wafts from the glass - very seductive. Rounded, intense soft-berried fruit on the palate with sublime purity and harmony, which then becomes opulent towards the finish. Wonderful balance and poise. Gorgeous. Range: 93-95
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Tightly focused, firm, tannic, rich and marked by sage, currant, black cherry, cedar and earth note. This builds into a mouthful of Cabernet, but it needs a little time.

Diamond Creek, California
Diamond Creek Winery Image

Diamond Creek, California's first "Cabernet only" estate vineyard, was established in 1968. Visionary pioneer, Al Brounstein, defied modern convention 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.
