Diamond Creek single vineyard Cabernets were the first of California’s estates to be dedicated to a single variety and with that, set the stage for small lot CA Cabernets. Diamond Mountain in the 1960's was virgin ground for vineyards and what is now Diamond Creek was part of a much larger ranch. Al heard that a number of acres were for sale. Worried that the property would be too cool for growing Cabernet Sauvignon, Al wanted some “experts” to walk the property with him. He brought along some friends – Louis Martini and famed viticulture expert André Tchelistcheff. Their advice was to plant Cabernet Sauvignon – it is interesting to note that at this time there were less than 1000 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon in the entire state of California. The rest is history. We get a very small amount of Diamond Creek Cabernets and with all the hype of the 2018 vintage and the 2020 Napa Cabernets will basically be non existent because of the fires, grab them while you can. The production is very limited Volcanic Hill 791cs, Gravelly Meadow 647cs, Red Rock a Whopping 599 cases. Stay safe, stay healthy and drink well. Tim Alberdi Redneck Wine Crew
