"The 1993 Gravelly Meadow possesses good fruit, extremely high tannin (excessive?), and a medium-bodied, spicy finish. It needs 5-6 years of cellaring as it is atypically backward for a 1993. 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)
