Only the darkest, most extracted lots from our Estate vineyards are used in making this wine. The oldest block was planted in 1970 to budwood from Martha’s Vineyard. The second block, 4 acres in size, was planted in 1983. Then in 1991 the von Strasser’s planted Petit Verdot, Merlot and Malbec.
Perfectly balanced, this favorite is loaded with dark fruit, black cherry, mocha and caramel. With a touch of cedar and vanilla on a velvety mid-palate co-mingled with lively tannins and a hint of violet. Full and velvety in the mouth with a lingering finish.. Bright acidity yet gentle tannins, this wine is made for the cellar for up to 12 years.

From an older block of estate vineyard, planted to budwood originally sourced from Martha's Vineyard, this 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot and 10% Malbec is not for the faint of heart or palate. Burly and expansive, its aromatics star, inviting in cedar, mocha and vanilla before black pepper and cherry take over. The tannins are velvety.
