The aromas hint at black fruit: ripe black cherries and black plums. Enticing barrel qualities of cola and spice complement the fruit aromas. On the palate, the wine shows layers of deeply extracted flavors that only mature hillside vineyards can render. The Estate Cabernet is the most age-worthy wine Buehler produces and may be enjoyed anytime over the next 15 years. For those who seek youthful, fresh Cabernet fruit aromas and a more structured wine, drink it from 2016 through 2020. If you prefer the less fruity, more developed bottle bouquet aromas and a softer, more velvety wine on the palate, drink it from 2021-2031.
