Diamond Creek Napa Valley Volcanic Hill Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

94 points Wine & Spirits
This south-facing wall of white volcanic tuff produced a great 2011, complete and healthy, with all its elements tuned for long aging. It feels cool and rich, a chewy, expansive cabernet that’s more accessible, with more balanced baby fat, than is typical for Volcanic Hill. The tough undergirding of tannins is finely integrated into the fruit, so the wine finishes savory and spicy even as the generous sense of plushness continues. 

93 points Antonio Galloni
The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Volcanic Hill is soft, pliant and nicely resonant in the glass. Plums, black cherries, mocha, spices and new leather are all laced together. This is a distinctly forward, supple Volcanic Hill to drink now and over the next 15-20 years, give or take. 

94 points Wine Enthusiast
The Volcanic Hill section of Diamond Creek’s vineyard on Diamond Mountain is, as advertised, influenced by volcanic soils. The wine imparts a chalky consistency to some extent, rounded out by dark, ripe plum and mocha, with a long, intense finish. Age through 2025.
