About the Wine:

 

2013 was the last vintage at Buccella for winemaker, Celia Wlch (Scarecrow), continuing the tradition of great winemakers putting thier stamp on Buccella's effortless wines.

 

Buccella's Cabernet Sauvignon is crafted from diverse, premium fruits thoughtfully cultivated by a variety of small vineyards Yountville and Coomsville. Low yields and great clonal pedigree, combined with meticulous farming, are essential to producing Buccella's Cabernet Sauvignon. It’s this blend of intensely ripe fruit that results in the wine’s unique character, complexity, depth and balance.

  • "This is a brilliantly packaged wine, but more importantly, what’s inside the bottle clearly matches the stylish design. A great vintage, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon from Buccella, which is 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Malbec and Petit Verdot, is a stunner. Inky purple, the wine has a glorious nose of graphite and blueberry liqueur, blacker fruits and a touch of oak. Once it hits the palate this is a full-bodied wine with terrific purity, texture, a multidimensional mouthfeel and a long, long finish. Everything is in sync and perfectly aligned in this profound and spectacular 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon. Approachable now, it should continue to drink well for another 20 to 25+ years."
