Rudy's winemaking philosophy centers on the concept that great wines are created in the vineyard and not in the winery. His most important winemaking tool is his palate: his ability to understand and analyze each vineyard’s wine potential through the tasting of the grapes. All of the grapes used in the von Strasser label are picked at their optimum ripeness when the flavors are peaking and the tannins have become ripe and soft. Based on these harvest decisions, the correct combination of fermentation and winemaking techniques (including cold soaking, fermentation temperatures, extended maceration, aeration, and an aggressive barrel program) are employed to maximize each vineyard’s potential. The end result is wine of great extract and a tannin complex which is both huge and soft at the same time. The resultant mouth feel is often described as being “chewy”, and makes these hillside wines both approachable when young, yet also worthy of further development with age. Read less

Classically styled, but with some problematic acid, and far too little on the aftertaste. Won't cellar as well as it ought to at the pricepoint.

Winery notes: Only the darkest most extracted lots from our estate vineyards are used in making this wine. This wine is deep in color. Aromas of cassis cocoa powder vanilla and sarsaparilla are interwoven with flavors of black currant dried plums and cherries and chocolate. Dense with a slightly sweet finish that lingers on. Varietal Make-up: 80% Cabernet Sauvignon 15% Petit Verdot 5% Merlot.

Winery Notes:A selection of the best lots off the mountain estate vineyard the 2005 is rich and age-worthy. Blended with a small amount of Petit Verdot and Merlot it shows sweetly ripe flavors of black currents cherries dark chocolate and plums with smoky vanilla new oak nuances. The tannins are pure mountain Napa dense and defined. Drink now through 2015.

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.
