1997 Von Strasser Diamond Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1087275 92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark A wine like this is sure to please. It hits every base, from bouquet to finish, with precision. Deeply extracted black fruit and cream aromas and flavors, with shadings of tobacco. The total package in Cabernet, with pretty fruit, a proper mouthfeel and even tannins. Inner quote mark (11/2000)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Deep ruby-red. Complex, vibrant aromas of blackberry, cassis, espresso, chicory, licorice and iris. Very intensely flavored and sharply focused; quite light on its feet thanks to nicely integrated but firm acidity. Complicating note of bitter chocolate. Long, subtle finishes features big but even tannins that coat the palate. (ST) 91+ Inner quote mark (6/2000)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Diamond Mountain offers cherry cough syrup characteristics intermixed with subtle notes of fudge, new oak, and licorice. This full-bodied, admirably concentrated, pure, rich, sweetly tannic red should drink well for 12-15 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (6/2002)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Austere, tightly wound and firmly tannic, with a chewy core of currant, anise, sage and cedar. Definitely needs time in the cellar for the tannins to soften. (JL) Inner quote mark (4/2000)
