2019 Chateau Buena Vista St. Helena 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 full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon from St. Helena.

95 points, James Suckling

A dark purple color in the glass, this 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon entices you immediately with aromas of fresh raspberry, cherry, and cranberry with notes of vanilla and earth. Hazelnut, cocoa, and spice enhance the ripe red fruit of this full-bodied wine. The finish is persistent and softly balanced with polished round tannins.



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, St. Helena were hand harvested between October 21 and October 24 before being fermented in open top fermenters and aged in 16% new French oak barrels for 20 months before being bottled unfiltered.
