    "From the biggest of the three vineyards, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Volcanic Hill comes from pure volcanic, iron-rich, rocky white tufa of volcanic origin. Marginally speaking, this is bluer and blacker than the Red Rock Terrace or Gravelly Meadow. A tour de force of perfection, this wine offers up crème de cassis, blueberry liqueur, licorice, earth, truffle and graphite. It displays spectacular richness, magnificent balance and texture, and a long, incredibly pure finish of close to a minute. This remarkable, full-bodied elixir should drink beautifully for another 30+ years, if not longer." - Robert Parker

    "The 2012s from Diamond Creek represent an homage to founder Al Brounstein and the winery’s 40th anniversary. The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Volcanic Hill is a big-time winner, with notes of charcoal, red and black fruits, cedar wood and a rich, full-bodied mouthfeel are followed by a concentrated, structured age-worthy wine that should last at least 25-40 years, if you go by past history. These were some of the most age-worthy Cabernet Sauvignons made in the world." - Robert Parker
