Planted primarily to Cabernet Sauvignon in some of the most diverse soils found throughout the region, Buehler has been hard at work to create wines of purity, depth and structure. With the 2013 vintage, we find some of the greatest wines that the estate has yet produced. The combination of Buehler's hillside vineyards and a perfect growing season has created an Estate Cabernet with a level of intensity that is seldom seen. ✦ Buehler v ineyards Cabernet Sauvignon e state 2013 RP 91 » $32 "...stunning depth and purity, full-bodied opulence and impressive richness and length..." (1704307) Making h is T ory n ot many properties in Napa Valley can attest to having a history that goes back over 100 years, back to a time when a vineyard was planted because it was the perfect mix of location, soil and exposure. One estate that can is Far Niente. Located in the same building and using the same vineyards that were established by John Benson in 1885, Far Niente continues to produce one of Napa Valley's most highly- regarded Cabernet Sauvignons. This should come as no surprise, as the estate vineyard sits in the Oakville hills, boasting classic gravelly, loam soil and ideal drainage. As a result, the Far Niente Oakville Cabernet is not only appealing in its youth, but also a perfect candidate for the cellar. f ar Niente Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2013 RP 94 » $150 "...Beautiful purity of expression characterizes this medium to full-bodied, concentrated, impeccably well-balanced Cabernet Sauvignon."
