"Blackberries, blackcurrants and minerals. Full body and tight tannins. Powerful and long. Amazing depth and structure. Muscular. Classy tannin structure. This needs a few years to soften but amazing. Try in 2018. "
Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines
"Wonderfully precise in its varietal focus and showing exceptional continuity and length, Diamond Creek's Volcanic Hill bottling is, at even this tender age, a complex and layered wine of great depth and dimension. What it is not, however, is in any way flashy or extravagant and its incisive Cabernet fruit is enriched with lovely, wholly complementary oak. Its balanced composition makes it one of the stars of an outstanding. Deep saturated rubypurple; Deep aromas of blackplums, chocolatemint and Bingcherry are matched by powerful and deeply weighted flavors of the same. Broad and massive on the palate, the chocolatecherry flavors linger with nuances of toast to the expressive finish. This wine should reward with decades of aging. "
