2019 Chateau Buena Vista Rutherford 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 splendid 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 rich and velvety Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon.

Dark ruby in color, this 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon immediately offers you aromas of blackberry, strawberry, and cherry, with baking spices and a hint of black licorice. This velvety and soft Cabernet Sauvignon has a bright finish with classic notes of cardemon, tobacco, and earth.



2019 was a near picture-perfect growing season that began in late February followed by a mild Spring yielding uniform grape clusters. Temperatures remained moderate to cool throughout the season with 2019 being considered one of the coolest vintages of the past decade. The cooler temperatures allowed for a longer hangtime resulting in an even and temperate harvest.

The grapes for this Appellation Series Cabernet Sauvignon, Rutherford were hand harvested between October 23 and October 26 before being fermented in open top fermenters and aged in 45% new French oak barrels for 20 months before being bottled unfiltered.
