    Winemaker's Notes:

    Sori Bricco is a beautifully constructed wine from our highest elevation vineyard, the title of which means "Sunny Hillside." Our highest elevation vineyard, this complex wine opens with bright red fruit, vanilla cherry and black currant intertwined with earthy notes of mushroom and cedar. The palate shows a touch of cocoa, espresso and brown sugar complete with a lingering finish of pie spice. Complete with vibrant tannins, this beauty will lay down for up to 20 years.

    Blend: 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot, 10% Malbec

    Critical Acclaim:

    This portion of the winery's vineyard always yields Cabernets of enormous concentration with hard tannins. The 2009 is a classic, detonating in the mouth with laserlike blackberry and cassis flavors, to which new oak brings additional richness of smoky cedar. It’s really a beautiful wine, but very tannic, even by Von Strasser standards.

    Von Strasser contracts six acres of the 15 at this vineyard dating to 1968, one of the early plantings on Diamond Mountain. It has the cool, zesty richness the region's best sites can give, brisk and breezy, grounded by savory tannins as mellow as melted chocolate. Decant it for something as rich as braised beef cheeks.

    Good deep, dark red. Aromas of redcurrant, mocha and tobacco come across as riper than the preceding samples, perhaps due to this vineyard's southern exposition. A step up in texture on the palate, with more sweetness and depth and a whiff of minerality to the rich redcurrant, red cherry, licorice and soil flavors. Finishes with suave tannins and noteworthy persistence. This is more like it!
