"The 1993 Volcanic Hill exhibits smoky, black-cherry fruit, is medium to full-bodied, and excruciatingly tannic. Is there enough fat, flesh, and flavor extraction to stand up to the tannin? Does anyone know why a winery that became legendary among California Cabernet Sauvignon enthusiasts would completely change the style of its wines after having enjoyed such remarkable success and loyalty from its fans? I have had serious reservations about the quality of Diamond Creek's wines and the dramatic change in style following the 1984 vintage. The 1993 Gravelly Meadow and Volcanic Hill appear to be very good, but they are not made in the style of the great Diamond Creek Cabernets made in 1978, 1977, 1976, and 1974. Amateurs of those wines would not recognize the still tannic but far less concentrated, tough, austere style of wine now being produced." - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #98 (Apr 27, 1995)
