Notes from the Winemaker:
Red Rock Terrace, a warm microclimate, is 7 acres of north facing vineyard. The red tinted soil is high in iron content. The wine from Red Rock Terrace is the most accessible and earliest drinkable of all our wines.

Our winemaker describes Red Rock Terrace as "having velvety tannins, rich and well balanced, medium dark ruby color with cherry, mint and black currant flavors."


Ratings & Reviews

98+ Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Made up of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Red Rock Terrace is very deep purple-black colored and features profound notions of plum preserves, blackcurrant cordial, Black Forest cake and espresso with suggestions of black tea, fertile loam, cardamom and menthol plus a waft of charcuterie. Medium to full-bodied, the palate packs in the taut, muscular black fruit and savory layers, framed by very ripe, very firm, grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing with epic length and depth." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (30th Sep 2019)

98 Points - James Suckling:
"The aromas of blueberries, blackberries and spices are impressive. Black licorice and iodine. Full-bodied, very linear and tight with a beautiful mouthfeel. Extremely long and polished. Lingering finish. So beautiful now, but better in 2022." - (5 Feb, 2019)

95 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Red Rock is a 7-acre block of the famous vineyard and this vintage is blended with 8% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc. Tobacco, leather and cigar box season a thick, viscous structure of sweet cherry and cassis that is rich and succulently rewarding. Cellar awhile to tame the tannins and enjoy best 2026–2031. Virginie Boone" - (11/1/2019)

95 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Offers a solid core of warmed plum, blackberry and black currant preserve flavors, backed by tobacco and ganache notes. A mouthwatering flash of iron and rippling acidity are buried on the dense and authoritative finish. Features ample grip for the cellar. Best from 2022 through 2040. 558 cases made." - JM (Issue Oct 31, 2019)
