DIAMOND CREEK Cabernet Sauvignon, Gravelly Meadow 2015

The 2015 Gravelly Meadow is a drop-dead gorgeous wine and looks to be the most impressive and complete wine from Diamond Creek in this vintage. Gravelly Meadow is a small 5-acre Vineyard, and the second coolest, next to the tiny 3/4-acre Lake Vineyard. Gravelly Meadow sits on a pre-historic river bed, with stony, gravelly soils that drain rapidly and force the vines to struggle for moisture, resulting in low yields. This instantly impresses with its seductive aromatics of ripe black raspberries, crème de cassis and nuances of ripe black plums, which come together with fresh spring florals, graphite, wet gravel and traces of savory wild herbs. On the palate this is full-bodied, layered and polished, with a gorgeous opulent texture. It continues to thoroughly impress with its remarkable overall balance, depth and concentration as it leads up to the long voluptuous finish. Displaying a wonderful combination of elegance, class and power, this has the hallmarks to become another classic wine from Diamond Creek.
