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.
"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."
The Wine Advocate
"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(+?) "
