Score: 90 | November 15, 2017 | Wine Spectator

The strong cedary presence throughout adds structure, flavor and dimension, lending a lead pencil edge to the taut dark berry, currant and olive notes.

Score: 92 | November 15, 2017 | Wine Spectator

Notably smoky and toasty, with a strong yet integrated oak presence joining a chorus of blackberry, black licorice, dried herb and cedar flavors, ending with a chewy lead pencil edge. Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot.

Score: 94 | November 1, 2017 | Wine Enthusiast

A structured wine that is also full of ripe fruit. Its red-berry fruits are encased in the tannins that still need to soften. The wine will be generous, full of berry flavors and with a dense texture.

Score: 93 | November 1, 2017 | Wine Enthusiast

Red-berry fruits dominate this already delicious wine. Allied with the acidity and the toasty wood aging, it is balanced while, of course, still young. It has potential, rich with tannins and with fine fruits. The wine is structured, needing time. 

Score: 91 | November 1, 2017 | Wine Enthusiast

Tangy and zesty, this crisp wine shows a strong sense of chalky terroir, with a mineral edge and tight acidity. These elements mean the wine will take time to age. 

Score: 92 | November 1, 2017 | Wine Enthusiast

This is a tight and textured wine. Spice and bright fruitiness are balanced with a strong mineral character. The wine will take time to reveal its full, generous fruit and richness. 

Score: 90 | November 1, 2017 | Wine Enthusiast

The wine is full of acidity — crisp and tight. With firm tannins to back up the red-currant fruit, it is going to take time to open up. Then it will become a rich serious wine. 

Score: 91 | November 1, 2017 | Wine Enthusiast

A ripe, balanced wine that has juicy red strawberry and raspberry fruits and fine acidity to balance. It is warm and rounded, full of dense fruits, with its tannins surrounded by the cushion of the fruit. 

Score: 90 | October 16, 2017 | Wine Enthusiast

This intensely ripe wine is made predominantly from Cabernet Sauvignon, with smaller amounts of Malbec and Merlot. Its waxy cherry, currant and blueberry flavers are laced wtih milk chocolate and smoky oak richness, a dash of high-toned acidity sparking on the finish.

Note this is for the 2014 Buena Vista Chateau Buena Vista GRAND RESERVE Cabernet Sauvignon

An underpinning of soft, grippy tannin carries lingering red currant and cranberry flavors in this full-bodied,unabashedly ripe reserve-level wine. Cola and leathery earth notes combine to boost and contrast the fruit, which persists long into the finish.
