Winemaker's Notes:

Stonefruit and jasmine come to mind in the first millisecond of assessing the aromas. The oak notes are of a more floral than roasty nature. In the mouth, the fruit flavors follow the aromas and are complemented by a hint of the signature Russian River lime quality. The impression in the mouth is full but not weighty, creamy in texture and seemless in the progression from sip to finish. The finish goes on and on and actually invites another sip.

About Buehler Vineyards:

John Buehler, Sr. and his son, John, began the renovation of the property that would become Buehler Vineyards in 1971. Located six miles east of St. Helena and nestled in the mountains above Conn Valley, Buehler Vineyards encompasses some 300 acres of Napa Valley hillside terrain. After a quarter of a century of growing grapes and over 20 years of winemaking from those vines, their focus remains on varietals that are best suited to this site: Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel.
