Buena Vista Winery Chateau Buena Vista Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
Founded in 1857, Buena Vista is California’s first premium winery, and its history is as colorful as it is proud. Today, the legend is being re-born under the vision of Jean-Charles Boisset. Just outside the town of Sonoma, the original winery is now a California Historic Landmark, and home to the Buena Vista winery, tasting room and visitor's center. Sourced from vineyards from Yountville to St. Helena, the Buena Vista Napa Cabernet was aged for 28 months before being racked and aged an additional four months in French oak barrels, 40% new, for final aging. It was then bottled unfiltered.
The grapes hail from vineyards throughout the Napa Valley, producing a rich and opulent Napa red wine with intensity, structure and power. It opens with rich aromas of black cherry and cardamom with a touch of black licorice. Spreading across the palate are flavors of red plum, black currant and cherry. The fine-grained tannins are silky and soft with a full-bodied mouthfeel and a long, lingering finish.
