96-Points, Three Puffs, (out of three) Connoisseurs' Guide -- "Deep, dense and unstinting in optimally ripened cassis and black-cherry fruit this show-stopping effort is uncommonly well-balanced for the very big wine that it is and shows a wonderful sense of layering that makes it so much more than just another brooding, broad-shouldered study in ripeness. It is sufficiently tannic to want a minimum of half-dozen years in the cellar, but it is a collectable wine that has all of the pieces in place to develop famously for a decade and more."
95-Points, Wine and Spirits magazine -- "von Strasser's Reserve is unusual in its emphasis on equal parts petit verdot and cabernet sauvignon, with merlot and cabernet franc each contributing ten percent of the blend. Verdot enhances the richness of the wine, the velvet texture and mouthfilling weight. That restful softness contrasts with layers of stony complexity, as if earth had been extracted into fruit. The blend is sophisticated, confident and delicious, a great Napa Valley wine that is sure to become a classic."
Estate Winery of the Year, Wine and Spirits magazine's 2005 winner.
