2018 Sheriff of Buena Vista

91 points, Jeb Dunnuck

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 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 2018 Sonoma County Red Wine is an authoritative blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Syrah, Grenache, Petite Verdot, Mourvedre, Merlot, and Mission. This wine jumps from the glass opening with bold aromas of plum, black cherries and violets on the nose. On the palate this wine is silky to the touch and juicy with flavors of blackberry jam, black currant and freshly cracked black pepper. Rich layers of dark chocolate and star anise then emerge on the finish, balanced with firm tannins and bright acidity.

The Sheriff of Buena Vista proudly calls Sonoma County its home. The varietals that compose the 2018 vintage are harvested from vineyards throughout the county, including the Sonoma Valley, Russian River Valley, Moon Mountain, Sonoma Mountain, Fountaingrove, Chalk Hill, Alexander Valley and Rockpile. The individual varietals were aged separately for 15 months in a variety of new and neutral oak barrels before being blended prior to bottling.
