Buehler Cabernet, Sauvignon, Napa Valley, 2016
Overview of the Wine
The wine is brimming with fruit aromas and flavors biased to the black fruit end of the Cabernet spectrum: plums, blackberry, and 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 2018 through 2022. If you prefer the less fruity, more developed bottle bouquet aromas and a softer, more velvety wine on the palate, drink it from 2023-2033.
Grape / Blend
91 - James Suckling
Hints of graphite, ripe cassis, cherries and violets all align nicely to quality cabernet here. The palate delivers a ripe and approachable core of fleshy, round plum-flavored fruit with spicy oak to close.
