Good dark color. Intense red and black fruits fill the nose. Initially the palate was very hot ad awkward, but after an hour or so this really fleshed out nicely. Intense currant and blackberry are forefront. There is some perfume fruits on the nose that walks a fine line of nice and awkward. This holds on though. It has a wonderful mouth feel that belies its price. Great leather and volcanic rock with a touch of anise and tar. Nice. I actually was looking for the '06, but am not disappointed the least. A highly tannic wine that needs time, but the acid really balances it out. A long finish with lots of stuffing. This is a sure sleeper & QPR

Nice wine, good mouth feel. Intense, deep color. Nice fruits, especially berry. Takes a little time to open up...definately needs decanting for an hour or more. My guests are always satisfied when I serve this wine.

Winemaker's Notes:

Buehler Vineyards 2005 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Comprised of 100% cabernet sauvignon, our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is crafted from grapes grown on our estate hillside vineyards (35%) in conjunction with grapes from other mature, high-quality, low-yielding Napa Valley cabernet vineyards located on the valley floor. We've found the resulting blend to produce a wine that displays a broad spectrum of aromas, flavors, and textures that cabernet can show in the Napa Valley. The 2005 growing season was exceptional in that the climate extremes were unexceptional during the flowering season, the summer, and even through the entire harvest. The relatively cool nature of the growing season delivered slowly ripened grapes with perfectly mature skin and seed tannins a week into November; the color of the resulting wines is notably dark. With higher acid levels and lower sugar levels at the optimum stage of flavor development, the word, "balance", best describes the overriding theme of the 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon. Following a seven-day fermentation, the wine was transferred to barrels before initiating the malolactic fermentation; keeping the wine "dirty" when young greatly increased the impression of roundness and smoothness in the finished wine. The 2005 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon was racked four times in the first year of aging to encourage aromatic and tannin development. It was aged a total of 18 months in a blend of French and American oak barrels. The wine is brimming with fruit aromas and flavors biased to the black fruit end of the cabernet spectrum: plums, blackberry, black currant. Rich and full-bodied on the palate, this cabernet drinks well on release but will soften and develop with additional age. For those who seek youthful fresh cabernet fruit aromas and a more structured wine, drink it from 2007 through 2011. If you prefer the less fruity, more developed bottle bouquet aromas and a softer, more velvety wine on the palate, drink it from 2012-2022.
