Diamond Creek is always a pleasure to drink. Hershey Powered chocolate, dark currant, and good tobacco all show up. Will get better but great to consume now.

Wow...dark blackcherry, some blueberry, ripe and aromatic with slight wintergreen, bell pepper, vanilla, blackberry liqueur, baking spices, tannins and acid still holding on...but it’s definitely time to drink this!! Amazing finish..paired with nothing but itself!

Dark fruit profiles predominate with nice acidity, leather, earth, spices and well integrated tannins. Started off a touch closed and blossomed in the glass after 45 minutes. Delicious

Probably the best domestic wine I’ve had. Still so youthful. No signs of fatigue. Beautiful and still evolving.

Beautiful, beautiful palate filling dark fruit, plum soft tannins on the tongue.

this had to be the surprise of the night. The wind held up after all these years. OMG, they knew how to make wine in Napa way back playing! This gorgeous beast could've been mistaken for a first growth Bordeaux!!!!!!
What a spectacular rockstar it was. Badass in a glass to say the least! I loved it and he just happened to be Shawn Rose's birth year Wine!!
Great birth year bud!!!!! This really held its own I'm on the Titans that we drink this evening. It was my only bottle but I will be sourcing some more within the near future to say the least. The only thing better was our company this evening! Thank you for making a trip down from Texas! Your motto is go big or go home so I had to pull out all the stops this evening!!!!!
@Shawn R @Christine Christine and I loved seeing you. We will definitely repay the favor!!!!! I'm sure your Texas barbecue will make for some great badass pairings!

surprising amounts of red fruit. juicy but with tannin to shed. wish more transparent but a memorable experience nonetheless.
