2010 Von Strasser "Reserve" Diamond Mountain District Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1347214 95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This is a 40-40 blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, with the balance consisting of Merlot. It's a barrel selection of the winery's best lots, from its various vineyards, and has been aged in 100% new French oak. Yet it's not oaky at all, with the wood bringing only additional sweet, smoky richness to the red currants, cherries, dark chocolate and spices. This is a superb wine, delicious right out of the bottle, but it should develop and, depending on your tastes, improve over the next 20 years. Inner quote mark (7/2013)

Outer quote mark Based on Rudy von Strasser’s signature blend of cabernet sauvignon and petit verdot (40 percent each), this wine takes time to open in the glass, moving past the vanillin-influence of oak into the blueberry richness of ripe verdot. It develops from sweet chocolate notes to more detail in both the fruit and the tannins. Inner quote mark (8/2013)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The saturated ruby/purple-tinged 2010 Proprietary Red Reserve is made from an interesting blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Petit Verdot and 20% Merlot. It possesses wonderfully sweet fruit, crushed rock, spice box and forest floor characteristics, ripe tannin, and a big, rich, full-bodied style. Drink it now or cellar it for another 15+ years.
