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.

Rudy von Strasser has become one of the premier cabernet growers in Napa Valley; his 2004s are clear proof of his talent. This wine is a barrel selection of some of the best lots from his estate, including a good dose of petit verdot (15 percent) and a touch of merlot (5 percent). Itandrsquo;s long on pure black currant fruit, succulent as a fresh forest mushroom. And thereandrsquo;s a youthful electricity that drives it, sleek and elegant even if it is far too young to drink andmdash; if you want to get the full benefit of the ferrous tannins and the potential complexity they hold. If you like to follow a wine through all the stages of its life, open this now, an hour or two before serving a beef tenderloin stuffed with mushrooms.

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, rich and expansive, with mouthcoating layers of earthy currant, cedar, herb, sage and mineral. A big-shouldered wine thatandrsquo;s firm and tannic, yet has a seam of elegance and finesse. Decant. Drink now through 2013.

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.

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.
