Buena Vista Winery Reviews

Score: 92 | October 1, 2012 | Beverage Dynamics
Buena Vista is the state's oldest premium winery, and they have focused on using high-quality fruit from the region during their century-and-a-half-plus existence; an elegant ruby color; the nose is dominated by black cherry, red berry notes and spice; the palate has plenty of rich fruit; a refreshing, balanced and long finish.

Very rich and opulent. You can taste how the grapes had a long season to grow enormously ripe, delivering flavors of pineapples, pears and golden mangoes. Yet the cool vintage also preserved vital acidity. A delightful young Chardonnay for drinking now with upscale fare.

A distinguished Merlot, dark, dry and brooding. Complex, too, with deep flavors of blueberry, mushroom, dark chocolate and anise. The tannins are fairly fierce despite the softness, but the wine doesn’t seem like a longterm ager, so give it a decant before drinking over the next few years.
