External Reviews for Von Strasser Cabernet Sauvignon
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.
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.
A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2005 Von Strasser Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Vineyards Diamond Mountain 750ml
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.
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.
