Buehler Vineyards Zinfandel Napa Valley 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Aromas of a briar patch on a hot summer day carry over to the palate and are carried in a mouth-filling, flavorful, juicy package. The wine was crafted for immediate enjoyment but for those who enjoy a more complex wine displaying some bottle-aged character. Not yet reviewed; Wine Spectator wrote this regarding the 2010 vintage: Lean and tightly wound, with firm tannins and acidity and flavors of black currant, mineral and peppery herbs. Best after 2013.

This Buehler Zinfandel was aged for 12 months in a combination of French and American oak barrels, 20% of which were new. At this level of "new wood," the up-front endearing quality of Zinfandel can assert itself. Aromas of a briar patch on a hot summer day carry over to the palate and are carried in a mouth-filling, flavorful, juicy package. The wine was crafted for immediate enjoyment but for those who enjoy a more complex wine displaying some bottle aged character, aging for another two to three years is a good option. The Wine Spectator called it "Sleek and focused, with cherry, mineral and fresh herb aromas and flavors. The finish is firm but promises to improve with short-term aging."
