Diamond Creek 2008 Volcanic Hill Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley)

Cellar Selection

Despite hard-as-nails mountain tannins, this Cabernet has a soft fleshiness that makes it drinkable now. The blackberry and black currant flavors have an umami, protein tanginess, like beef tartare, which smoky oak pairs nicely with, like salt and pepper. You can pop the cork now, but this is a wine that will develop over the next 10–15 years.
