95+ points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): "The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Red Rock Terrace boasts serious depth and power, but it appears to be holding all of the elements very much in reserve. Hints of camphor, tar, menthol, wild flowers and dark fruit open up gradually over time. Constantly changing in the glass, the 2009 is endowed with superb energy and tension. It is also incredibly inward and in need of considerable cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2024-2049. (Dec 2012)"

95 points and '100 Best Wines of 2013,' Wine & Spirits: "The iron-rich red soils of this seven-acre, north-facing hillside produced a classic 2009. It starts off luscious and develops detail as it takes on air, building on the fresh red berry scents with notes of flowers and brisk edges of tannins. Streamlined and tightly focused in its structure, this is glorious cabernet. 508 cases. (Dec 2012)"

93 points Connoisseurs' Guide: "Diamond Creek's offerings are generally among the more sturdy and structured Cabernets of the vintage, yet as this well-crafted effort so capably shows, structure in no way contradicts polish. A lean and yet fairly muscular bottling with a tightly wound core of essential blackcurrant fruit framed deftly with oak, the wine hints at elements of dark soils and briar and is underpinned by plenty of fine tannins. It wants to be cellared for no fewer than a half-dozen years and will not show its best until a decade has passed. (Dec 2012)"
