*Cellar Selection* Von Strasser has a good track record with this wine, and the '05 is right up there with the best, but be forewarned. It's very tannic. But then, it is from Diamond Mountain. Give it a good 4 years, at least, to throw some sediment and let the rich blackberry and black currant flavors emerge.
The deep soils at Post Vineyard produce tobacco-scented Cabernet, this '05 setting bright blackberry into smoky oak char and mineral tannin. It's integrated, lean and long, needing bottle age to gain breadth and depth.
Dry and herbal. Well-structured, with savory herb, bay leaf and dusty dried currant flavors that unfold gracefully. This is extremely tight and backward now, but it has a sleek, tight focus. (JL)
