Red Rock Terrace is typically the second wine to be tasted in the line up of the three Cabernets from Diamond Creek. Coaxing aromas of bergamot, dark berries, café brûlot and graham cracker drift from the glass. Smooth and graceful, the palate is structured with ripe, mouthcoating tannins layered with black cherry, rhubarb, and interlaced with earl grey tea, iron and savoury dried herbs that lead to a long, rhythmic finish.

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Red Rock Terrace is a blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 4.5% Malbec and 4.5% Petit Verdot. Deep garnet-purple, it comes bounding out of the glass with exuberant notes of cassis, plum preserves, cedar chest and pencil lead, plus wafts of black truffles, damp soil and unsmoked cigars. Medium to full-bodied, the palate bursts with black berry flavors and wonderful freshness, packed with loads of subtle savory layers and textured by approachable, plush tannins, finishing on a lingering fragrant earth note. 599 cases were made.

Cellar Selection. Red Rock is aptly named, reflecting a seven-acre portion of the estate that is littered in red, rocky soil. With moderate plushness and enduring elegance, it offers a complex structure and contrasting brightness of cassis and dark cherry. Herbal accents of sage and forest contribute to its overall appeal. Enjoy best from 2028-2038.

Ripe and focused, with a racy-edged mix of plum, blackberry and black cherry fruit that's steeped with anise, violet and bay leaf notes, underscored with a racy sanguine hint. A flash of alder chimes in through the finish, pulling everything together nicely. Best from 2022 through 2038. 599 cases made.
