Winemaker Notes

Volcanic Hill is the longest lived of Diamond Creek's wines. The winemaker describes these wines as "full bodied, loaded with intense ripe berry fruit, cassis, violets and a smoky richness, finishing with good length and firm tannins."

Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
Mastering the beast, I have always had a soft spot for the 2014 Diamond Creek Cabernet Sauvignon. While the wine has often been super tannic, I never found it too tough. This vintage is one of the best this property has yielded. (Tasted: August 21, 2017, San Francisco, CA)

Loads of blue fruit, violets and lavender. Flowers everywhere. Full body and medium chewy tannins. Bright and vivid. Tangy and long. Needs four to five years to open. Try in 2022.
RP 96
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Volcanic Hill is a little youthfully subdued and broody at this early stage, revealing black soil, truffles and tapenade notions over a blackberry and cassis core, plus a touch of chocolate box. The medium to full-bodied palate springs to life with vibrant black fruit and subtle earth and savory suggestions, framed by rounded tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing long.
Rating: 96+
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Offers a frame of dusty, cedary oak around a core of loamy dark berry, anise, licorice and blackberry flavors. Deftly balanced, this is tempting now but worthy of cellaring. Best from 2020 through 2032.

Diamond Creek, California

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.

California

Cabernet Sauvignon

Covering the most vine acreage in the state compared to any other red wine variety, Cabernet Sauvignon produces as much wine in California as Merlot and Pinot noir combined. The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates, as well as the freedom of its winemakers, allow for an incredible range of wine styles from this single grape.

California’s most famous region—and especially for Cabernet Sauvignon—is the acclaimed Napa Valley. While Cabernet is successful throughout the world, rarely has it achieved such merit as it does from the Napa Valley. At this point the two are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other.

Napa’s closest neighbor, Sonoma County, does an impressive job keeping up with Napa’s fame and glory. Alexander Valley, Sonoma Mountain, Moon Mountain and Knights Valley contribute to the lot of some of California’s top-rated Cabernet Sauvignon.

Lake County in California’s North Coast has become a focus for some of Napa’s more respected growers. From the Central Coast come iconic examples of classic California Cabernet; Lodi and the Sierra Foothills are great budget-friendly sources of amicable Cabernets.
