Tasting Notes

On the nose, the wine is unusually open and giving, engaging the taster immediately. However, rather than rushing out of the glass, this is a more measured introduction, luring you in. Notes of small black cherries, violets, graphite, spice and a little pepper introduce themselves one by one, all in perfect detail. On the palate, there is a gear change, a subtle flexing of the muscles that reminds you that this is a serious, long lived wine. Power and grace combine effortlessly in a flowing, captivating ensemble. The minerality and freshness of the finish as well as the fine tannins show top grade winemaking but always in a natural, pure way, nothing forced or out of place. This wine is a true thoroughbred, clearly a masterpiece from the Guinaudeaus. armit, 20 points. Drink 2019-2030+

Reviews & Scores

The nose is fascinating, with blackberry, black licorice, mineral, flowers and more. Full-bodied, with an incredible texture of ripe tannins and cashmere yarn. A tightly wound ball. What length too. This wine made me feel like getting in the lotus position and meditating. It's almost more than wine. Vinous Nirvana. I think the Cabernet Franc really gave that extra level to it all. James Suckling, Wine Spectator 97-100 Points

"Red Rock Terrace displays a beautiful core of blackcurrant, crème de cassis and juicy red plums. Hiding behind the gorgeous sweet fruit, fragrant notes of cordial, cocoa and liquorice emerge with time in the glass. Laser-beam precision is supported by the finest, grippiest tannins imaginable. Those tannins carry the beautifully concentrated fruit to a long, long finish. Effortless and perfectly...

"Brooding yet sensuous, Gravelly Meadow reveals earthy, savoury, meaty notes the nose, along with blackcurrants, blueberries and mulberries. There are subtle hints of herbs, tobacco and cedarwood. Once again, the tannic structure is impeccable and perfectly integrated. This says more about the superb quality of the fruit than it does about the 100% new oak. Gravelly Meadow is Diamond Creek’s...
