Founded in 1857, Buena Vista is California’s first premium winery, and its history is as colourful as it is proud. Today, the legend is being re-born under the vision of Jean-Charles Boisset. Just outside the town of Sonoma, the original winery is now a California historic landmark.
The wine uses fruit from across the Napa Valley which is aged for 18 months in French oak (35% new). This is a classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon – Rich and luxurious.
This wine is full bodied, powerful and well structured. It has a complex array of black cherries, violets and a hint of maple aromas before the sumptuous blackcurrant, red plum and cocoa flavours envelop the palate. The silky, fine grained tannins lead up impressively to the intense and long finish.
