Winery 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.

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is ample, bold and creamy. Graphite, dried herbs, lavender, blackberry and mocha infuse the 2018 with striking layers of nuance. Medium in body yet full of flavor, the 2018 hits all the right notes.

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!

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.

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. Drink now through 2028. 2,800 cases made.
