2016 Von Strasser Diamond Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1455966 93 points James Suckling

 Vibrant, ripe and rich plums with blackberries and cassis lead to a palate that has an ultra-silky, smooth and supple texture, as well as a very rich, ripe core of blackberries and plums. Long, silky finish.  (10/2018)

 Rudy von Strasser’s latest blend, from a range of sources on Diamond Mountain, is a knockout. Since he sold his estate vineyard, he has rejiggered this wine; for 2016, he focused on the most concentrated lots in his cellar. The wine has a range of fresh wild-berry flavor, clean, pure notes of blackberries, mulberries and blueberries that completely saturate the earthiness of the tannins. The fruit incorporates those rocky tannins into an overall impression that’s gentle and rich. Fresh, floral and substantial, this is approachable as a young wine and beautifully balanced for a long life ahead.  (12/2019)

This is another absolute beauty from Rudy von Strasser. The nose presents a gorgeous mix of black raspberry, currant, and blueberry framed by sweet tobacco leaf, cedar, mocha, red rose, leather, baking spices, vanilla, and licorice root. It stays every bit as harmonious and poised on the palate while fine-grain tannins provide the structure to age well or stand up to steakhouse fare. Really shows a lot of elegance combined with plenty of richness and power. A great example from the truly stellar 2016 vintage.
