Bright medium red-ruby. Aromas of blueberry, licorice and fresh herbs lifted by a mineral quality. Juicy and fairly intense, with ripe but cool flavors of medicinal dark berries framed by a firm spine of acidity. Finishes tactile and persistent, with a slight green edge. This one appears to have the intensity to harmonize with bottle aging.

About This Producer


Rudy Von Strasser has made wine since 1990 off his Diamond Mountain property, but his winemaking experience didn't start then. He was the first American intern at Chateau Lafite-Rothschild in 1985. Upon his return to Napa, Rudy served as enologist at Trefethen before becoming assistant winemaker at Newton Vineyards. Armed with this influential training, he began looking for his own property from which to craft his wines. He bought the former Roddis Estate Winery and launched his label. The portfolio has grown steadily to encompass several single vineyard wines and a rarely-produced Reserve blend. Varieties include Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petite Verdot. The style is classic Diamond Mountain.
