Winemaker Rudy von Strasser worked for Robert Mondavi Winery, Trefethen and Newton Vineyard before starting his own Diamond Mountain winery in 1990. Here are von Strasser’s production and tasting notes for this wine: "Since 1999, von Strasser has created single-vineyard bottling from the Sori Bricco Vineyard. In most years, the blend uses a high percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon and is thus labelled as such. However, Sori Bricco Vineyard features other grape varieties that add to the complexity of the blend: Merlot with an unparalleled density; inky-dark Petit Verdot, full of blueberry-syrup aromas; and spectacularly concentrated Malbec. This blend goes outside of the Cabernet Sauvignon-box to create a truly unique wine, destined for a long life in your cellar and to wow those lucky enough to share the bottle.”
