Buehler Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013, California 

My Rating 88 Points.   

Price $25.
Hello Friday! Here’s my Cabernet fix…

Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Light nose, and still tight, with blueberries, cherries, licorice, oak, light vegetables, coffee, chocolates and peppercorn.

Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.

Extra dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, vanilla, licorice, light oak, peppercorn, spices and beef jerky.
Nice finish with firm tannins and black pepper.

This is a very nice Napa Cabernet. Still young, but already enjoyable, even by itself. Balanced, complex and interesting. Very dry with big tannins and a nice mouthfeel.

Needs an hour to open up. This should be much better in a couple of years.

14.1% alcohol by volume.
