2019 Chateau Buena Vista Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
The core of this 2019 Buena Vista Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon stems from sites surrounding the estate vineyard in St. Helena, pulling in Atlas Peak and Oak Knoll fruit for length and brightness.
Boastful ripe aromas of Mirabelle plums, raspberry, and nuances of sweet anise and toee on the nose. This Cabernet Sauvignon is full-bodied with blended flavors of blackberry jam, chocolate, and ripe Bing cherries.
Ripe-berry and walnut aromas with cedar and spice, following through to a full body with creamy, polished tannins and a juicy finish. Dusty and firm at the end. Better in a year or two.
The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Chateau Buena Vista is more fresh and focused, with more sappy herbs, violets, mint, and both red and black fruits. It’s not green, yet it certainly has more herbal notes as well as medium to full-bodied richness, ripe tannins, and terrific balance. It should keep for 15 years. Unfortunately, it’s made in tiny quantities.
