The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Volcanic Hill is a blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12.5% Merlot, 8.7% Malbec and 2.8% Petit Verdot. Deep garnet-purple colored, it bursts with vibrant scents of wild blueberries, chocolate-covered cherries and boysenberries with hints of sassafras, fragrant earth, vanilla pod and underbrush, plus a waft of crushed rocks. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers fantastic purity and depth, offering firm, grainy tannins to support the bags of earth-laced black fruits, finishing long and mineral laced. Drink 2025-2050.

Volcanic Hill is typically the last wine to be tasted in the line up of the three Cabernets from Diamond Creek. Aromas of cassis, black liquorice, and bay leaf and ripe black cherries lift from the glass. Rich and elegant tannins, and a labyrinth of blackberries on the palate lead to plum, cardamom, espresso, and scented earth that make it alluring in youth but will age well beyond.
