Buehler Vineyards is a family-owned winery perched atop a hill overlooking the town of Saint Helena. For four generations, the family has been crafting Cabernet and Zinfandel-based wines that are focused and pure expressions of place, thanks to their minimalist approach to winemaking that lets the terroir do the talking.
The 2016 Buehler Vineyards Napa Valley Zinfandel was crafted exclusively from the winery's low-yielding estate vineyards (low-yielding vines bring forth grapes that are ultra-ripe and concentrated). The 2016 harvest delivered an early, high-quality Zinfandel crop. Today's wine was aged for 12 months in a combination of French and American oak barrels, 20% of which were new. At this level of “new wood”, the up-front endearing quality of Zinfandel can assert itself. Aromas of a briar patch on a hot Summer day carry over to the palate in a deeply layered, juicy package. *
92 Points, James Suckling:
"A delicate style of zinfandel that shows red berries, tobacco, and leather on the nose. Lean tannin structure and a medium body. Fresh and fruity finish. Plenty of good fruit." (11/15/19)
90 Points, Wine Spectator:
"A structured and refined Zinfandel, with vibrant cherry, dried sage and
pepper accents that build richness toward fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2024. 950 cases made." (10/31/19)
90 Points, Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"This wine presents tremendous value, made from the producer’s own low-yielding, dry-farmed vineyards. Dusty black pepper, baking spice, and leather give it a nice rusticity and character, with a touch of sandalwood and oak. Brambly blackberry rounds it out, supported by thick, firm tannins." (7/1/20)
