Generally warmer than Gravelly Meadow, Red Rock is a terraced hillside facing north across the Diamond Creek lagoon toward Volcanic Hill. It’s the richest and fattest of the three wines in 2010, a bold stroke of black fruit across the palate. Sweet, plummy and generously oaked, this wine’s baby fat doesn’t manage to completely hide its formidable structure. The detail in the tannins develops with air, in a raw silk texture and scents of conifer. Contrast that with high notes of jasmine and ginger root and the complexities begin to emerge.
