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
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.
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.
