Buena Vista Winery, founded in 1857, has a rich and unrivaled heritage as the first premium — and certainly the most colorful — of all of the wineries in California. Its founder, Agoston Haraszthy, the self-proclaimed “Count of Buena Vista,” was a vivacious and eccentric pioneer with a veritable love and unending commitment to California wine. Nearly 164 years later, and after facing many challenges, Buena Vista Winery has not only endured but, is thriving. 1857 Red Wine honors this storied history and is a reflection of the quality, dedication and revitalization of the winery since joining Boisset Collection in 2011.
The 1857 Red Wine opens with a beautiful nose of crème de cassis, anise and floral notes. Layered flavors of cherry, plum and blackberry are accented by notes of cocoa and toasted oak. This is a full-bodied and elegant wine with fine-grained tannins and a dense mouthfeel. There is a touch of cardamom on the long and lingering finish.
