The richness and refinement of a Napa Valley red wine

The estate

Founded in 1968 by Al and Boots Brounstein, Diamond Creek is indeed a jewel of Napa Valley. Thanks to these two pioneers’ vision for modern winemaking in California, the estate became very quickly well known for its talent in boosting the expression of cabernet sauvignon. To see their great project through, the couple carried out rigorous studies of the two determining elements in the character of each wine : knowing the soil and the microclimate of these great terroirs. Today the property of Louis Roederer, the eminent Champagne House, Diamond Creek has not stopped seeking to create wines that express the unique character of their plots, which benefit from a rare and varied geology.

The vineyard

This Gravely Meadow Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 from Diamond Creek is a Californian wine that comes from a vineyard of about 2 hectares, planted in 1968 on a brown, pebbly soil.

The vintage

The 2018 Napa Valley vintage saw an almost perfect vegetative growth. The grapes matured gradually and evenly until the harvest was fully ripe.

Winemaking and ageing

Following the harvest, the grapes were carefully sorted. Cold maceration for 4-5 days before fermentation for 7-9 days. Ageing in French oak barrels (100% new) over 21 months.

Blend

Cabernet sauvignon (78,5%)
Merlot (8,4%)
Malbec (8%)
Petit verdot (5,1%)
