The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Volcanic Hill is the most primordial, concentrated, masculine and meaty wine of this trio. It possesses surreal concentration as well as a stunningly opaque ruby/purple color, and wonderfully sweet tannin. Its layers of concentration and richness eclipse the more elegant, perfumed Gravelly Meadow and more solidly constructed Red Rock Terrace. Like its siblings, it remains ten years away from full maturity. It should drink well for 20+ years. One of the great iconic vineyards of Napa Valley, Diamond Creek Vineyards burst on the scene in the decade of the 1970s with some of the most monumental Cabernet Sauvignons ever made in Napa, if not the entire world (if you have never tasted their 1974s, 1975s, 1976s and 1978s, you’ve missed some of the most colossal Cabernet Sauvignons to have ever been produced in Napa).
