Lot #275. Diamond Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Gravelly Meadow 2013

Description: Consists of 6 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 98 RP.
"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Gravelly Meadow could pass for a La Mission Haut-Brion in a blind tasting. Loads of crushed rock, earth and minerality are followed by blue fruits, none of the scorched earth you sometimes find in La Mission Haut-Brion in hot years, but beautifully pure blue and black fruits, medium to full-bodied, sweet, ripe tannins, and a layered mouthfeel that builds incrementally to a full-bodied yet elegant and incredibly pure, long finish. This is sensational stuff that should drink well for 25-30+ years. One of the iconic wineries of Napa Valley, Diamond Creek’s vineyards were planted in 1968 in three distinctive soil types over 20 acres on Diamond Mountain. Some of the most extraordinary Cabernet Sauvignons have emerged from these sites, especially in the early 1970s – 1974, 1975, 1976 and 1978 are all legendary wines that are still fabulous today. The 2013s are all 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in French oak." Wine Advocate #228, Dec 2016
