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.
