2016 Sheriff of Buena Vista

The story of our founder is as long as it is colorful. One of California’s first sheriffs, Agoston Haraszthy was elected the Sheriff of San Diego County in 1850. He built the first jail and served two exciting years before moving north to pursue “purple gold” and the perfect terroir for fine wines. He found it in Sonoma County where he established Buena Vista Winery in 1857. It is his legacy that inspired this wine and the work of sheriffs everywhere that we honor with its release.

The Sheriff of Buena Vista is deserving of its name. This bold 2016 Sonoma Count Red Wine is an authoritative blend of Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Syrah, Petite Verdot, Mission and Cabernet Franc. This robust wine opens with arresting aromas of black plum and cassis mingled with notes of brambleberry and star anise. Rich flavors of raspberry and blackberry are complemented with notes of dark chocolate and a touch of soft baking spice. Well-balanced acidity and polished tannins lead to a superbly long finish.

The Sheriff of Buena Vista proudly calls Sonoma County its home. The varietals that compose the blend are harvested from vineyards throughout the county, including the Alexander Valley, the Sonoma Valley, Rockpile and Dry Creek. The individual varietals were aged separately in a variety of new and neutral oak barrels before being blended prior to bottling.
