Diamond Creek Volcanic Hill Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 is a concentrated red wine with an intense purple garnet colour and deep aromas of blackcurrant, blackberries and ripe plums accompanied by spicy notes of cloves, wild sage and woody touches. On the palate this wine is full-bodied with a somewhat rustic texture. It reveals marked tannins and a pleasant freshness. The finish is long, persistent and spicy.

Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Diamond Creek Volcanic Hill Cabernet Sauvignon is a barrel-aged red wine produced by the prestigious Californian winery Diamond Creek in AVA Napa Valley (USA) with the Cabernet Sauvignon variety.
 
The Diamond Creek project was set up in 1968 by Al Brounstein and his wife Adele Boots on the steep slopes of Diamond Mountain, where they planted four separate plots in the hope of producing four unique wines: Volcanic Hill, Red Rock Terrace, Gravelly Meadow, and Lake Vineyard. This is how they became the first winery in the Napa Valley to bottle 100% Cabernet Sauvignon wines from a single plot. These are collector’s wines that are loved all around the world. Following the death of the founders, the winery was taken over by the exclusive Maison Louis Roederer in 2020.
 
Diamond Creek Volcanic Hill Cabernet Sauvignon comes exclusively from a small vineyard of just over 3 hectares lying on a volcanic hill composed of grey soil of volcanic ash. Throughout the year, Volcanic Hill enjoys a warm climate and the vines are cultivated in an environmentally friendly way. 
 
In the winery, when the best grapes have been selected to make Diamond Creek Volcanic Hill Cabernet Sauvignon, they are crushed, fermented and macerated at a controlled temperature.  The wine is then aged in 225-litre wooden barrels for a minimum of 18 months. 
 
Napa Valley’s great reputation has been built by great wines. Diamond Creek Volcanic Hill Cabernet Sauvignon is one of these. A long-living wine that tends to be the most explosive and rich of the Diamond Creek collection.
