The true collector’s case, this brings together the best of Diamond Creek in an enviable assembly from the first exclusively Cabernet Sauvignon Estate in California. One secluded mountain, three single vineyard selections, and a taste tour of terroir like none other. 5 bottles from Gravelly Meadow, 4 from Red Rock Terrace, and 3 from the warm, south-facing Volcanic Hill: The depth and richness found in these bottles has been cherished by connoisseurs for decades!

When the late Al Brounstein carved out a rugged parcel on the slopes of Diamond Mountain almost 50 years ago, he made California history. Three separate parcels (actually four if you include the microscopic "Lake" block) with three distinct soil types were identified and planted in the hopes that they would yield three wines with their own personalities. Four decades hence, Al's vision has been validated, and his family has carried on with what at the time must have seemed like borderline lunacy. The style has evolved - these wines are drinkable far sooner than some of their earlier brethren - but the focus on quality most definitely has not. Join us in raising a glass to 40 years of Diamond Creek!
