2020 Chateau Buena Vista Coombsville Cabernet Sauvignon

In 1861, our founder, Count Haraszthy, journeyed to Europe to procure the
finest grapevines. While in Bordeaux, he declared Cabernet Sauvignon is its
unsurpassed grape. The wine made of it possesses splending color and an
exquisite bouquet. Bringing choice cuttings back to California, he propagated
them at Buena Vista and sold thousands to those that founded the Napa
Valley wine world. We celebrate Buena Vistas historic contribution to Napa
wine by offering this concentrated and seamless Yountville Cabernet
Sauvignon.

Very deep ruby hue with lovely aromas of dark berry, granite and hot chalk, overlaid with a bed of violets and thyme. The palate is dense, concentrated, powerful but contained, tannins are beautifully laced through the density of the fruit creating a silky weave. The acidity is high but nicely distributed across the palate and integrates nicely with the fruit of the wine. The finish is long, poised, elegant, warming. Superbly charming and elegant wine.



2020 kicked off with ideal growing conditions. Mild temperatures led to evenly developed clusters and an early budbreak was followed by a warm to hot summer. Low winter rains resulted in smaller berries with concentrated flavors. Harvest was in early August and all things pointed to normal yields and exceptional fruit quality.


The grapes for this Appellation Series Cabernet Sauvignon, Coombsville were hand harvested then fermented in open top fermenters and aged in 2% new French oak barrels for 24 months before being bottled unfiltered.
