Wine Advocate 92 points - The dense purple-colored 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Gravelly Meadow offers stony notes intermixed with cassis and gravel along with a striking minerality, rich, deep cassis fruit, well-concealed and integrated new oak, and a long, structured finish. These cuvees are generally meant for considerable cellaring, and this wine needs to be forgotten for 5-6 years and drunk over the following 20-25 years.  (Oct 2013)

Wine Enthusiast 94 points - The winery has hardly changed its winemaking formula over the decades. Gravelly Meadow remains toughly closed, dry and tannic in youth, despite its core of blackberry and cherry fruit. While the wine is flamboyantly forward by Diamond Creek standards, it would be a crime to drink it before 2020. It’s so balanced and complex, it will easily age until then, and probably far longer. - Cellar Selection  (Dec 2013)

Wine Spectator 93 points - Sleek and perfumed, this is relatively supple and polished, with a mix of loamy earth, juicy berry, mint and underbrush flavors. Should reward cellaring. Best from 2016 through 2030.óJ.L. (Aug 7 2013)
