von Strasser 2011 Zinfandel Diamond Mountain

Produced from the tiny Diamond Mountain District at the northern end of Napa Valley, the von Strasser 2011 Zinfandel is an excellent bottling – and new release – that we are thrilled to offer to our Platinum Series members. Von Strasser’s reputable wines are produced in such limited quantities, and therefore extremely desirable, so we took the opportunity to secure a few cases as soon as they were made available (reviews are forthcoming). The 2011 Diamond Mountain District Zinfandel is very classic in style, with inviting aromas of raspberries and coffee and a vibrant palate of cocoa, espresso, ripe raspberries, and figs. Its lush tannins and undertones of earth and leather provide a wonderful balance and full body. This wine is incredibly ageworthy (if you have the patience to wait), but it is drinking beautifully now [+]
