Bright ruby-red. Deep aromas of black raspberry, minerals, flowers, cola and spicy oak. Concentrated, bright and sweet, with lovely spicy lift to the flavors of crystallized dark berries and chocolate. Offers impressive balance and enticing sweetness. Finishes broad, ripe, lush and long, with plenty of fine-grained tannins. An excellent example of Diamond Mountain cabernet.

Iandrsquo;m a big fan of Von Strasserandrsquo;s Diamond Mountain Cabernets andmdash; their quality consistently goes far beyond the price point. The Post vineyard is young and restrained now but shows outstanding potential for short or long term cellaring. Elegant and richly layered with black currant, chocolate, olives and briary black raspberries. A fresh, untampered style of winemaking shines through the purity and intensity of the fruit. A classic.

The 2004 Diamond Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of select distinctive vineyards, all within the Diamond Mountain District AVA. The lots are specifically chosen for their unique combination of concentration, bright fruit aromas and elegance. This wine is loaded with cassis, berries and violets on the nose and sweet, supple tannins on the palate.Softer and more elegant in style than the vineyard designated wines, this impressive Cabernet will excite the palate today or age gracefully for 10+years.

Von Strasser's '97 tames the big, bold Diamond Mountain Cabernet style with a more elegant tone. Saturated with color and fruit flavor, dark red and black fruits and a buzz of cedar. The flavors soak into the mouth, sophisticated and already yielding tremendous pleasure. While the fruit is succulent and juicy as a pear, the structure is there to hold it for years - drink it now for freshness and power, or drink it ten years from now for mellow complexity. A focused and voluptuous wine.

Firm and intense, with earthy tannins wrapped around tight currant, mineral, anise and herbal sage notes that add up to a complex medley of flavors. Well-balanced, with the tannins providing structure. Best from 2009 through 2012.

A clean and gentle cabernet, this grows at a vineyard with relatively deep, red volcanic soils at the base of Diamond Mountain. Itandrsquo;s adjacent to Rudy von Strasserandrsquo;s estate, and he has managed the vines since planting them in 1992. The 2004 includes 10 percent merlot and five percent petit verdot, which creates a complex layering of fruit andmdash; brisk blueberry above, darker currant underneath, spreading over tannins that lend earthiness and scents of black tea. An elegant wine to enjoy now for its freshness, or to cellar for a decade.

Deep red-ruby. Cool aromas of dark cherry, bitter chocolate, licorice and herbs. Tightly wound and rather folded in on itself, but the blackcurrant and licorice flavors already show lovely aromatic lift. Thereandrsquo;s firm acidity here but this very suave wine finishes with ripe, supple tannins. This should repay a few years of patience.

Winemaker's Notes:

The Rainin Vineyard sits on the highest parts of Diamond Mountain Road, faces east, and soaks-up the morning and afternoon sun. The aromas of this wine are intense with ripe blackberry and pipe tobacco while the palette is as smooth and soft as a cashmere scarf. Pare this wine with a roasted leg of lamb with pan roasted potatoes and carrots.
