Description

The aromatic richness and elegance of a Napa Valley wine

The property

Founded in 1968 by Al and Boots Brounstein, Diamond Creek is indeed a jewel of Napa Valley. Thanks to these two pioneers’ vision for modern winemaking in California, the estate became very quickly well known for its talent in boosting the expression of cabernet sauvignon. To see their great project through, the couple carried out rigorous studies of the two determining elements in the character of each wine : knowing the soil and the microclimate of these great terroirs. Today the property of Louis Roederer, the eminent Champagne House, Diamond Creek has not stopped seeking to create wines that express the unique character of their plots, which benefit from a rare and varied geology.

The vineyard

Volcanic Hill Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 from Diamond Creek is a Californian wine stemming from a vineyard planted in 1968 on a light soil composed of ash. The Red Rock Terrace vineyard consists of about 3 hectares.

The vintage

The 2018 vintage in Napa Valley benefitted from a near perfect growth. The grapes ripened gradually and consistently up until full maturity at the harvest.

Winemaking and ageing

Following the harvests, the grapes were carefully selected. Cold maceration over 4-5 days before fermentation for 7-9 days. Ageing in French oak barrels (100% new) over 21 months.

Blend

Cabernet sauvignon (76%)
Merlot (12.5%)
Malbec (8.7%)
Petit verdot (2.8%)
