Buccella Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
'Celia Welch crafts the Buccella Cabernet Sauvignon from vineyards in Rutherford, Oakville, Stags Leap, Yountville and Coombsville. Welch told me she is gradually backing off from the super-ripe approach of the past. The Cabernet generally spends about 22 months in French oak barrels, 80% new, and is bottled unfined and unfiltered.' Wine Advocate
Wine AdvocateWhat a glorious statement for Cabernet Sauvignon, Buccella's 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine has an opaque purple color, a beautiful nose of forest floor, white flowers, blueberry and black raspberry, along with a telltale cassis and subtle background oak. Full-bodied, rich and multi-dimensional, this is fabulous 2012 that's just coming into its own. Look for this wine to drink well young, as it already is, and evolve for 20-25 years.
