2008 Buehler Vineyards Zinfandel (Napa Valley)

Lighter garnet color. The nose shows plum stew, anise and a hint of honeysuckle. On the palate this wine shows a great balance of fruit and acidity. The fruit is classic Napa Zin with plum leading the way but also some raspberry pepper and vanilla. The finish is medium to long and shows a nice mineral edge to add to the complexity. This wine is both fruit forward and elegant. If you are looking for an over the top extracted style this isn’t it. However this Zinfandel is great for its restraint and softness while still showing pure fruit flavors. A good value and a very well made wine.

2005 Buehler Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon (USA, California, Napa Valley)

2005_buehler_nappa_valleyA good amount of sweet dark fruit on the nose. Currant, blackberry and hints of dill and cedar across the palate. The finish is long with fine grained tannins hanging on all the way through. Buehler seems to always deliver consistent quality at a fair price with their Napa Valley designated Cabernet Sauvignon and this 2005 vintage is no exception.

2005 Buehler Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley, St. Helena)

A very well put together wine. The nose features flavors of black currant, green peppercorn and ginger. On the palate it’s more black currant toasted oak and spice box and lingers all the way through the medium length finish. An excellent value at $22.
