Winemaker's 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.

Critical Acclaim

"The dense, rich, and full-bodied 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Vineyards Diamond Mountain exhibits copious quantities of cassis, licorice, and Asian spices as well as sweet tannin in the finish."
90 Points

"Full red-ruby. Aromatic, floral nose dominated by cassis; the least herbal of the 1999 Von Strasser reds. Full, fat and deep, with a lovely layered texture and solid underlying structure. Accurate cabernet flavors of black- and redcurrant enlivened by firm acidity. Some earthy low tones add complexity.
Rating: 90(+?) "

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
