2018 Chateau Buena Vista Oakville 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.

Deep garnet in color, this 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon entices you with flavors of juicy red and black fruits. It separates itself with a nose that is enhanced by notes of plum, blackberry and chocolate. The palate is lush with well-integrated, soft tannins and an elegant and silky mouthfeel.



The vineyards enjoyed idyllic growing conditions with consistent weather and milder temperatures in 2018. The beginning of the year was notably dry; however, well-timed rainfall just before budbreak provided the necessary water for canopy development. Flawless conditions ensued during flowering and fruit set which led to higher-than-average yields. While the season got off to a later start, veraison occurred only seven days later than the average which gave the fruit the necessary time to ripen perfectly.



The grapes for this Appellation Series Cabernet Sauvignon, Oakvillee were hand harvested then fermented in open top fermenters and aged in 50% new French oak barrels for 24 months before being bottled unfiltered.
