#8 Intl. Wine Report's Top 100 Wines of 2018

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Gravelly Meadow opens with a lovely floral perfume of violets and rose hip tea with a core of chocolate-covered cherries, mulberries, blueberry compote and plum preserves plus hints of wood smoke, tobacco and menthol. Full-bodied and firmly framed with grainy tannins and background freshness, it has gorgeous earthy layers and a mineral-tinged finish. – Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate

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. - Intl. Wine Report
 
The aromas of mint, blueberries and blackberries are very intense. Full-bodied, layered and softly textured; yet it delivers a firm and lightly chewy finish. Hot stones, too. This is a wine that will improve with three to four years of bottle aging. - James Suckling
 
Soy, tobacco and dried herb mark this appropriately named wine, which does indeed have a gravelly, chalky aspect to its texture and taste. From a five-acre vineyard block of the estate, it is endlessly complex and nuanced, despite its full-bodied richness and concentration. - Wine Enthusiast
