In a nutshell:
Classic, rich and luxurious Napa Valley Californian Cabernet Sauvignon.
From one of the oldest Californian estates that can trace its roots back to the 1860s, Buena Vista is one of the revered names in the state. Using fruit from across the Napa Valley which is aged for 18 months in French oak (35% new) the wine 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.
When to drink:
Full bodied, powerful and well structured, the silky, fine grained tannins lead up impressively to the intense and long finish.
