Tense, black and smoky, this is almost tarry when first poured. That reductive blackness fades into a sleek wine over the course of two days, with bright cherry fruit and dark, juicy, cherry-skin tannins. Oak brings a rich, dark-roast coffee warmth, supporting the fruit tannins without masking them. Cellar this to serve with filet mignon (12/2014)
Von Strasser Diamond Mountain District Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is an elegant expression of Diamond Mountain District. This blend of six single vineyards all within this AVA offers a softer, approachable style highlighted by its fruit forward nature.
Immediate nose is pleasing with dark fruit of blueberry, blackberry and leather layered with flavors of licorice, coffee, pomegranate and subtle earthy undertones. Wrap it up with supple tannins to enjoy now or up to 10 years.
