Buccella Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2003

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Saturated ruby. Very primary aromas of blackberry cassis licorice and minerals. Sweet fat and layered; conveys a very soft rich palate impression reminiscent of high-grade merlot. Very round wine with exotic brown spice and chocolate flavors. Finishes broad and quite lush with very fine tannins. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon s production was only 300 cases. It exhibits great fruit wonderful opulence low acidity and plenty of character as well as appeal. It too can be drunk now and over the next decade or so. Kudos to proprietors Bill and Alicia Dean for such an impressive beginning. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Impressive. Supple and harmonious with rich polished currant herb mocha and wild berry flavors that are intense and concentrated offering power with finesse. Shows a dash of heat on the finish but fans of full-throttle Cabernet won t be disappointed. Best from 2008 through 2013. 325 cases made. -JL Wine Spectator.
