Buehler Vineyards Napa Valley Zinfandel
Napa Valley, California
Tastes Like: Blackberries, Dark Chocolate, Toasted Oak
Buehler estate is located in premium terroir at the base of Howell Mountain, where wines are spectacular but not cheap. Somehow owner John Buehler is creating selections of astonishing depth at prices that seem like a mistake. “We could be a lot more profitable if we raised our prices,” John admits, but “we’d rather be known as a great value in Napa.” This is exactly the kind of philosophy that we look for in a producer, and the quality of John’s wines makes them the perfect benchmark for selections that over-deliver!
Case in point: the 2015 Buehler Vineyards Napa Valley Zinfandel, a wine with unmatched structure, freshness, and purity of fruit – in short, it’s one heck of a bottle. Aromas of blackberry and mocha lead into mouth-filling layers of dark chocolate, leather, and toasted oak, with supple tannins that lead into a luxuriously long finish. This 91-Point ‘Editor’s Choice’ Zin is flawlessly balanced and seamless on the palate, and unsurprisingly it’s also an incredible value!
