Lot #270. Diamond Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Gravelly Meadow 2008

Description: Consists of 6 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 95 AG.
"A deep, dark beauty, the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Gravelly Meadow totally saturates the palate with the essence of blue and black fruit, cassis, bacon fat, mint, flowers and melted road tar. It is at once soft yet massively structured. At times, the 2008 is surprisingly approachable for a young wine from this estate, but then the Diamond Mountain tannins kick in, and it is a different story. Clean veins of minerality frame an insistent finish laced with tar, smoke and plenty of charred aromas and flavors. This dark, brooding beauty should be at its best between ages 15 and anyone's guess. Today, the Gravelly Meadow is the most complete of the 2008s." Vinous, Dec 2012
Notes: OC.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $950
