Outer quote mark The surprise treat at the end of the tasting was a wine that had never previously been released: 2013 Three Vineyard Blend. Produced as an experimental wine, 300 cases were included with the sale of the property, which Maison Roederer has recently decided to sell. The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Three Vineyard Blend is composed of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot, 4% Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot coming from Volcanic Hill (70%), Red Rock Terrace (25%) and Gravelly Meadow (5%). It was aged for 22 months in French oak, 22% new. Deep garnet in color, it struts out of the glass with flamboyant blueberry pie, baked plums, black cherries, baker's chocolate and rose oil scents with hints of cinnamon stick and rare beef. Full-bodied, rich, concentrated and powerful in the mouth, it delivers beautiful floral accents, lifting all that opulent fruit and supported by velvety tannins, finishing long with amazing energy.

Outer quote mark The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Three Vineyard Blend is an experimental wine that was bottled a few times in Diamond Creek's history, but never officially commercially released. The 2013, a blend of 70% Volcanic Hill, 25% Red Rock Terrace, and 5% Gravelly Meadow is superb. What a wine. Rich, powerful and savory, the 2013 is just starting to enter the place where it is approachable, in relative terms of course. There is still plenty of hillside tannin, and yet there is so much about the 2013 that is alluring. The aromatic breadth, the intensity of the fruit and the wine's persistence are all so compelling. Wow. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2021)
