Winemaker Notes

The aromas hint at black fruit: ripe black cherries and black plums. Enticing barrel qualities of cola and spice complement the fruit aromas. On the palate, the wine shows layers of deeply extracted flavors that only mature hillside vineyards can render. The Estate Cabernet is the most age-worthy wine Buehler produces and may be enjoyed anytime over the next 15 years. For those who seek youthful fresh cabernet

fruit aromas and a more structured wine, drink it from 2021 through 2024. If you prefer the less fruity, more developed bottle bouquet aromas and a softer, more velvety wine on the palate,  drink it from 2025-2035.

Critical Acclaim

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and expressive notes of crushed blackberries, wild blueberries and cassis plus suggestions of bay leaves, clove oil and unsmoked cigars with a hint of cardamom. Medium-bodied and elegantly styled, the palate is chock-full of bright, crunchy black fruit with subtle, invigorating dried herbs accents and approachable, grainy tannins, finishing with a lively lift. Impressively priced for the quality here, it is drinking beautifully right now, and should cellar for a good 12 years+. Stock up!

Blueberries, cedar and mushrooms on the nose. It is medium-bodied with soft tannins and a juicy texture. Lots of toasted oak. Needs two or three years to come together.
JD 90
Jeb Dunnuck
A step up, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate reveals loads of classic Cabernet herbal tones as well as plenty of darker currant fruits, notes of tobacco, chocolate, and earth, medium to full-bodied richness, and a round, supple, nicely textured mouthfeel that keeps you coming back to the glass. It’s well done and ideal for enjoying over the coming 8-10 years.
D 90
Bell peppers, menthol, and charcoal dust aromas. The texture is deeper and more dark-fruited than the entry Buehler Cabernet, with flavours of black currants, cedar and black pepper. The acid/tannin balance is well-calibrated for early consumption. An overall solid value.
WS 90
Wine Spectator

 Delivers an enticing beam of creamed plum and boysenberry fruit inlaid with warm anise and mocha hints, ending with an echo of sassafras as the fruit sails through. One for the hedonist crowd.

Buehler Vineyards, California
Buehler Vineyards Winery Image
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.

One of the most prestigious wines of the world capable of great power and grace, Napa Valley Cabernet is a leading force in the world of fine, famous, collectible red wine. Today the Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other. But it wasn’t until the 1970s that this marriage came to light; sudden international recognition rained upon Napa with the victory of the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1976 Judgement of Paris.

Cabernet Sauvignon undoubtedly dominates Napa Valley today, covering half of the land under vine, commanding the highest prices per ton and earning the most critical acclaim. Cabernet Sauvignon’s structure, acidity, capacity to thrive in multiple environs and ability to express nuances of vintage make it perfect for Napa Valley where incredible soil and geographical diversity are found and the climate is perfect for grape growing. Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that express specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil—as a perfect example, Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
