Von Strasser 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Post Vineyard

Von Strasser’s 2006 Post Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is a stunning achievement from the youngest and smallest vineyard on the winery’s Diamond Mountain District property in Napa Valley. The winery’s highest rated Cabernet of the vintage, this wine garnered an incredibly hard-to-get 96 Points from Wine & Spirits magazine: “This vintage is only Cabernet Sauvignon, a rarity for von Strasser. Its current, mushroom and juniper scents hover while the black mineral character of the tannins makes a soil impression that lasts. There’s brightness at the center of the wine and savory, coniferous darkness around the edges. The tannins finesse all their earthy power into something delicious, with the Pacific cool that Diamond Mountain brings to Cabernet.” Also awarded 93 Points by Wine Enthusiast magazine, the 2006 Post Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon gives an enormous nose filled with candied cherry and cinnamon with a smooth, rich mouthful of bright berries and bittersweet chocolate [+]
