More Bordeaux than some Bordeaux. Diamond Creek from the early 80s are like no other. This one from magnum.

Beautiful, earthen, with lots of fruit balancing a long finish.

Stunning & from magnum: pure, mineral-driven & generous, another great Cali Cab from my birth year (at least CA had a good vintage in '84)

These wines are consistently fantastic IMHO. This one showed cassis and plum skin over a backdrop of gravelly minerality (duh). It eludes words.
