Buehler Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2008
Very dark, somewhat murky color. Quite woody nose with a kind of leesy note. Very pleasant on the palate. It spreads over the tongue and imparts some blackberry/cassis flavors. Tannins are very will contained but are sufficient along with some acid to give good structure. US$16.99 at Costco a year ago.
Three and a half glasses

Two parts concentrated cherry flavor, one part slick tannins and a dash of herbs, this winersquo;s flavors last, making a potent impression. Ready to juice up a steak.
Intense and concentrated, with chewy wood and herb-laced currant fruit thatrsquo;s a bit rustic and tannic yet hearty and dense. Ends with chewy tannins. Drink now through 2011.
Creamy oak, red currant and black cherry aromas turn rich and chewy on the palate. Well-concentrated, it turns elegant and offers a measure of finesse thatrsquo;s impressive. Appealing now, too. Tasted twice with consistent notes. Drink now through 2012.
Firm and structured, with a complex mix of dried currant, black cherry and plum flavors, with cedary oak and blackberry peeking through on the finish. Quite tannic, so it's best to decant. Drink now through 2011.

Big, ripe and tannic. Loaded with rich currant, plum, earth, anise and spice, but also has a streak of leather that detracts. Still, therersquo;s a lot to admire. Best from 2002 through 2009.
A real steal and one of the greatest sleepers I have tasted from Napa (the Mecca for expensive Cabernet Sauvignons) is Buehlerrsquo;s 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon from their vineyards in Napa Valley. There are only 1,800 cases of this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, so this offering is likely to disappear quickly from the marketplace. It offers a dark ruby/purple-tinged color, abundant black currant, licorice and smoky tobacco leaf characteristics, medium to full body, a supple, velvety style and impressive purity, texture and length. Consume it over the next 10+ years.
