    Winemaker Notes

    Grapes for our 1998 Estate Zinfandel come off the estate block we call "the Barn". Dry farmed for over a decade, these vines consistently give us our best Zinfandel fruit. The wines off this block show deeper color, a more pronounced raspberry character, and a bit more tannin than the rest. Interspersed among the old head-trained vines are a handful of petite sirah vines amounting to perhaps 5% of the total vines in this block. A traditional field companion to Zinfandel in pre-prohibition California vineyards, petite sirah contributes pepper, color, and tannin structure to the wine.

    The hedonistic style of our 1998 Estate Zinfandel reflects our belief that great Zinfandel should give great pleasure and drinking it should not be like undergoining a high-alcohol, high-tannin, and highly volatile fermented raisin juice tolerance test. Forward rasberry and briar patch aromas are wrapped in a lush, juicy, seemingly sweet (it isn't) package built for pure pleasure. Our puritan ancestors would be appalled at the notion of such decadence.

    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.

    Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

    Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
