2013 Chateau Buena Vista
Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Before there were vineyards in every valley north of San Francisco, before Napa and Sonoma were household names, before there was a California wine world at all, there was Buena Vista. 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, with Winemaker Brian Maloney in the cellar. The winery’s future is its past… its vivacious, colorful, and pioneering past!
Today, Proprietor Jean-Charles Boisset is returning Buena Vista to its original glory with the complete restoration and re-opening of the champagne cellars, which have been unavailable to the public for over 20 years. Buena Vista wines are being driven to greater heights under Winemaker Brian Maloney, including the reintroduction of Sonoma as well as Napa Valley, in honor of where it all began!
Tasting Panel 95 points: This wine celebrates Buena Vista’s long history in Napa Valley, with grapes sourced from all over the region, including St. Helena, Rutherford, Stags Leap and Calistoga -and the label showcasing the impressive edifice at Buena Vista, depicts the winery built by its founder; Count Agoston Haraszthy, in the late 19th century. Taste the tilled soil, the dusty cherry-choclolate cedar and the opulent, finely grained tannins that over deliver for the price in this deep magenta-hued powerhouse.
Wine Enthusiast 93 Points: This wine hails from vineyards throughout the Napa Valley and is a rich and opulent Napa red wine with intensity 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 long, lingering finish.
