The Private Reserve wines are the peak of Buena Vista's winemaking craft, presenting the best that Sonoma has to offer. Buena Vista historically produced wines under the Private Reserve name, and now restores the title to declare these limited production wines the ultimate within the portfolio. This Zinfandel is sourced primarily from two vineyards where the warm summer days deepen the richness on the palate.
A deep ruby in the glass, our 2014 Private Reserve Zinfandel offers aromas of black plum and fresh cracked pepper with herbaceous undertones. Flavors of black cherry, blueberry and boysenberry balanced with notes of baker’s chocolate and rich caramel. Fine tannins and incredible structure with medium body and a long, delightful finish make this an immediately enjoyable wine that will also age beautifully over the next 7-8 years.
The Private Reserve Zinfandel was sourced from the warmer portion of Sonoma Valley where the afternoons reach high temperatures during the growing season for extended periods of time and result in a wine with juicy, rich flavors. The grapes for our 2014 vintage come from 30 year old vines on the property adjacent to Buena Vista and part of Count Haraszthy’s original winery,
