2010 Diamond Mountain District Napa Valley Estate Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

Rudy von Strasser’s estate vineyard is a south-facing hillside of volcanic soil. The vines—some planted in 1981 by Bill Roddis; more planted by von Strasser in 1991 and ’98—achieved fine ripeness in 2010, impressive for the vintage in its melding of cool fruit and warm tannins. It’s fattened up by oak, but the fruit completes the structure, feeling luxurious and sexy in the end. This benefits from several days of air as it will benefit from years in the cellar. (655 cases)
