Buehler Vineyards Zinfandel Napa Valley 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

100% Napa Valley Zinfandel fruit hand-picked riper than most producers with less residual sugar. Riper fruit translates to flavors like wild berries and strawberries; yes, real red Zinfandel fruit flavors! The end result is a wine with more red Zinfandel berry character and a less sweet, more refreshing taste.

Rhône-like undertones. Dry, with tar, tea, earth and raspberry flavors, ti picks up a touch of roasted coffee and game flavors that add a nice twist. Well-made, if limited-quality, Zinfandel. Drink now through 2005.

Aromas of a briar patch on a hot summer day carry over to the palate and are carried in a mouth-filling, flavorful, juicy package. The wine was crafted for immediate enjoyment but for those who enjoy a more complex wine displaying some bottle-aged character, aging for another two to three years is a good option.

WS 91pts - Winemaker Notes - Our Zinfandel was aged for 11 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.

Supple and balanced, with pretty raspberry and cherry fruit and lively notes of spicy red pepper and candied apple that persist toward the long finish, which keeps the focus on the fruit. Drink now through 2011.

Elegant and beautifully focused, with floral raspberry and fresh sage aromas and complex, balanced flavors of cherry and vanilla, with a hint of spicy oak on the finish. Drink now through 2016.

Appealing for its bright burst of raspberry, dried strawberry and rhubarb pie flavors. Supple tannins and just a hint of oak carry through the finish. A good value. Drink now through 2007.
