2016 Diamond Creek Red Rock Terrace Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, USA
Is very deep purple-black colored and features profound notions of plum preserves, blackcurrant cordial, Black Forest cake and espresso with suggestions of black tea, fertile loam, cardamom and menthol plus a waft of charcuterie. Medium to full-bodied, the palate packs in the taut, muscular black fruit and savory layers, framed by very ripe, very firm, grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing with epic length and depth.
98 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Offers a solid core of warmed plum, blackberry and black currant preserve flavors, backed by tobacco and ganache notes. A mouthwatering flash of iron and rippling acidity are buried on the dense and authoritative finish.
