2016 Buccella Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
Winemaker Notes: The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon exemplifies the classic Buccella style. Its deep garnet color and enticing bouquet of blackberry, fig, cinnamon stick and pipe tobacco will charm your senses. On the palate there is an overall juicy brightness and layered complexity of ripe blackberries, currants, licorice, crushed stone minerality and finely grained tannic structure. Time in the glass brings out the aromatic intensity and depth of flavor. This wine is destined to age gracefully for many years to come.
Blend: Cabernet Sauvignon 92% • Petit Verdot 5% • Malbec 2% • Merlot 1%
Antonio Galloni - “Blackberry jam, chocolate, new leather, licorice, dark chocolate and espresso all infuse Buccella's 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon with notable complexity to play off the super-ripe, plush fruit. Readers should expect a full-throttle, extroverted style. Even with all of its opulence, the 2016 is very nicely balanced. It is another compelling wine in a streak of strong recent releases from Buccella.”
Jeb Dunnuck - "The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon checks in as 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot, and the rest Malbec and Merlot. This inky colored effort has a big bouquet of currants, plums, licorice, black olives, bloody meat, and roasted herbs, with maybe even a hint of espresso roast. It's a big, rich, powerful wine that has good acidity, ripe tannins, and a stacked mid-palate, with a touch of the austerity that's common in the vintage. 93+"
James Suckling - "Wild character of blackberries, black olives and meat on the nose and palate. Full body, round and juicy tannins and a flavorful finish. Soft and attractive now. 92% cabernet sauvignon, with petit verdot, malbec and merlot. "
