2014 Diamond Creek Gravelly Meadow Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley USA
The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Gravelly Meadow offers up an opaque purple-black color and is profoundly scented of crème de cassis, plum preserves and mocha with hints of tar, black pepper, Indian spices and balsamic. Full-bodied, rich and decadent in the mouth, it delivers an incredible depth of fruit and earthy flavors, with a solid backbone of fine-grained tannins and great freshness, finishing long and earthy.
97 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Marked by a strong cedary oak presence, though not at the expense of balance and proportion, this offers spice, currant, dried herb and crushed rock flavors and a long, focused finish. Too young now for peak enjoyment, but let this rest and then savor the complexity. Best from 2020 through 2032.
