Buehler Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
Wine EnthusiastThis is an impressive effort, especially at the price, which is kind of unheard of in these parts. Softened by 9% Merlot, it's rich and full-bodied without ever overdoing it, opaque in color with a nose of baked bread and flavors of raspberry and black currant. It's food-ready.
Wine AdvocateOne of the great values in Napa Cabernet Sauvignon year-in, year-out is Buehler Vineyards. The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is dense ruby/purple with loads of cassis and spice box. The wine is beautifully pure, luscious, round, juicy and sexy. Drink it over the next 5-7 years, although I suspect it will keep longer. Wines like this are few and far between -- sadly -- in Napa Valley.
Wine SpectatorA solid if rustic effort, with extracted, ragged tannins more prominent than the core dark berry fruit notes. Ends with dusty earth and savory herb flavors. Drink now. 15,000 cases made.
