($175) Bright ruby-red. Cassis, spice cake and exotic dark chocolate on the nose, lifted by a floral perfume. Sweet, dense and youthfully unevolved, with classic cabernet flavors of dark berries, dark chocolate, licorice, leather and flowers. A very backward wine that's currently dominated by its rather powerful structure. Broadens out impressively on the back end, finishing quite long and leathery, with dusty tannins. Showed increasing sweetness of fruit with extended aeration. These wines were accidentally omitted from myNorth Coastcoverage in Issue 120-a shame, as this is the best set of Diamond Creek cabernets I've tasted in several years.
