Buehler Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Estate 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Situated in the mountains above Conn Valley and near the base of Howell Mountain, the Buehler Estate vineyards are planted primarily to Cabernet Sauvignon. The juxtaposed topography of steeply sloped hillsides with eastern exposures against very gently sloping hills with southern and southwestern exposures hints at the tumultuous geologic past of the Estate; extensive faulting resulted in at least three distinct soil types. Not surprisingly, grapes grown on the different soils give different characteristics to the finished wines; these differences are often as great as the differences between various Bordeaux varieties and allow us to blend within the variety of Cabernet Sauvignon to craft a truly multi-faceted Estate wine.

Situated north of Pritchard Hill and Conn Valley, near the base of Howell Mountain, our hillside vineyards are planted primarily to Cabernet Sauvignon, with smaller blocks of old-vine Zinfandel.

Dark pruney color in the glass. Fairly big nose--vines, wood, prune, volatiles. Very sedate introduction to the palate. It takes a bit for the wine to flow over the tongue before I start to detect the slight cassis, coffee, leather hints. Fairly light on the tannin initially, but then it kicks in just a tad. Respectable acid give a refreshing flair. US$29.99 at Total Wine in 2011.
