Score: 90 | September 12, 2022 | Wine Berserkers

(£24.50) 13.5% alcohol. Ripe and juicy in a fruit-forward style with nice density. Has sweet cherry fruit with spicy overtones. Stylish stuff. 90/100

Score: 92 | June 29, 2022 | The Wine Independent

The 2018 Chateau Buena Vista Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot. Deep garnet-purple in color, it gives up blackcurrant cordial, stewed plums, and cigar box scents with hints of wild sage and forest floor. Full-bodied, the palate delivers savory-sparked black fruits, supported by chewy tannins and just enough freshness, finishing earthy.

Light ruby in colour; toasty, black raspberry nose with oak notes; medium to full-bodied, dry, red plum and raspberry flavours; well-balanced, lovely mouth-feel.
