TN: 1984 Diamond Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Lake (USA, California, Napa Valley, Diamond Mountain)

I’ve now had a chance to sample 3 of the 10 vintages of Diamond Creek Lake that have been made since 1972 ('84, '92 and '96) and this was my second experience with the '84. They’ve all been very good, but this bottle was stunning. Thanks to Matt and Karen for sharing this rare bottle with us. This one’s in a good drinking window now, which should last another 10-15 years.

True dat, as well as the three '89s we have had.

have had a lot of old DCV but never any of the Lake Vineyard wines. envious!!!

Richard - I am getting increasingly jealous of the wines you have been drinking recently - what a streak! [worship.gif]

It was indeed a very fine example of DC Lake. Many thanks to the generous offering from Matt & Karen!


Great to see Matt and Karen are being taken care of out west! Couple of great friends that we’ll miss having close.

Never had the lake “vineyard”…but wouldnt mind trying it out. Sounds tasty.
