Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 91(+?)

Good deep, dark red. Aromas of redcurrant, mocha and tobacco come across as riper than the preceding samples, perhaps due to this vineyard's southern exposition. A step up in texture on the palate, with more sweetness and depth and a whiff of minerality to the rich redcurrant, red cherry, licorice and soil flavors. Finishes with suave tannins and noteworthy persistence. This is more like it!

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.
