The winery's colorful founder, The Count of Buena Vista, pioneered premium winemaking in California. A tireless and passionate devotee of California wine, The Count imported hundreds of premium vines from Europe, dug Sonoma's first wine caves, introduced innovative viticulture techniques, and wrote the first treatise on California wine. Buena Vista Winery honors his legacy, bold vision, and commiment to excellence through this red wine – the Founder's Red Wine.
The wine's bouquet opens beautifully with rich aromas of black currant, cherries and just a hint of espresso. Smooth on the palate, the wine offers flavors of plum and blackberry that give way to cardamom on the long, silky finish.
I rarely give 5 stars but this wine encompasses everything I like about a red wine. It's spicy yet a little jammy, long finish, great aromas. Certainly right for the price too.
Smooth & Supple
Love, love, love this wine. There is starting to be a little sediment/cristalization, so you might need to strain/decant. I did neither - amazing fruit, perfect tannins, good med smokiness totally peaking right now in my opinion. Best unrated wine I have had in a LOOOOONGG time.
I really like this wine! It is fruity and spicy. Full and bold enough to stand on its own, but would be a great addition to any meal. YUMMY and JAMMY!
Very good wine
Cant get enough of this wine. One of the best wines I've had for the price. A true hidden gem! Enticing mix of old world character and new world fruit. I like this wine how I like my men, rich and intriguing ;)
Earthy & Spicy
