Winemaker's Notes:

A nose of crushed currants, cigar box, dark, macerated cherry and vanilla pod. The mouth entry, showing flavors of tobacco, rich, spicy flower blossom and chocolate dust is exquisite. The finish is liquid blackberry jam, and blueberries.
My Notes:

About Buccella:

Buccella: Latin for "mouthful." Its name evokes the wine's big, bold concentrated layers that wrap a mouth with luxury. The story of Buccella began over a beautiful bottle of 1990 Gaja. It was William and Alicia Deem's first date. They were two individuals with distinct dreams, until their common love of wine started them on a wonderful journey together. Their passion drove them to begin the pursuit of a shared dream in 2002 – quite simply –to make the best wine they could. The Deems savor wine for its ability to make connections, create memories, and nourish the true enjoyment of life. Buccella handcrafts limited production Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Rebekah Wineburg is their winemaker and Celia Welch is consultant winemaker.
