North-facing Red Rock Terrace is a steeply terraced vineyard. The rocky, red-tinted soil is high in oxidized iron content, and because of its northerly aspect, the grapes receive less direct sunlight. With one of the estate’s warmest microclimates, Red Rock Terrace is typically the second wine to be tasted in a line-up of Diamond Creek’s four Cabernets Sauvignon.

Red Rock Terrace often expounds with dark cherry and black currant flavors, ripe, mouthcoating, velvety tannins and notes of tea, iron and savory dried herbs.

98 pts Wine Advocate

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Red Rock Terrace is a blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 4.5% Malbec and 4.5% Petit Verdot. Deep garnet-purple, it comes bounding out of the glass with exuberant notes of cassis, plum preserves, cedar chest and pencil lead, plus wafts of black truffles, damp soil and unsmoked cigars. Medium to full-bodied, the palate bursts with black berry flavors and wonderful freshness, packed with loads of subtle savory layers and textured by approachable, plush tannins, finishing on a lingering fragrant earth note. 599 cases were made.
