Prepare to be amazed. Von Strasser's 2009 Diamond Mountain Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is a stunner, and today Central Liquors offers it on sale. We loved it not only for its classic, mountain fruit intensity, but also for the amazing depth and complexity the wine displayed. You might expect it to be a chewy, backward monster but, while it will certainly age well, this Napa classic is undeniably delicious right now.
"So enormously delicious, it will be hard to keep from drinking this gorgeous Cabernet right away, and that's just fine. It's composed of the most intensely concentrated flavors of blueberries and blackberries-dense, pure and slightly heady with a liqueur-like alcohol. The tannins are classic Diamond Mountain, firm and minerally, while oak plays the perfect role of the buttered toast and sweetly charred supporting character. Despite its immediate attraction, it's best cellared for 6-8 years, at the very least. Fans of old Cabernets will still be loving it in 2029." 98 points Wine Enthusiast
