Winemaker's Notes:

Our goal in making our Napa Valley Zinfandel is to make a delicious wine that is true to the variety and vineyard, not an outrageous expression of the monster that can be coaxed from the variety. We prefer to make a zinfandel you can enjoy with a meal instead of a cigar!

Aromas of strawberry/rhubarb lead to a medium-bodied mouthfeel, free of heat from alcohol or tannins. It makes a great companion to a meal! -David Cronin, Winemaker

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.
