K&L Notes

Winemaker's Notes: "The wine is brimming with fruit aromas and flavors biased to the black fruit end of the Cabernet spectrum: plums, blackberry, and black currant. Rich and full-bodied on the palate, this Cabernet drinks well on release but will soften and develop with additional age. For those who seek youthful fresh Cabernet fruit aromas and a more structured wine, drink it from 2017 through 2021. If you prefer the less fruity, more developed bottle bouquet aromas and a softer, more velvety wine on the palate, drink it from 2022-2032. Our 2015 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is crafted from Cabernet Sauvignon grown on our estate hillside vineyards (30%) in conjunction with grapes from other mature, high-quality, low-yielding Napa Valley vineyards located on the valley floor. Comprised of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot, the blend produces a wine that displays a broad spectrum of aromas, flavors, and textures that Cabernet can show in the Napa Valley tempered by the silky, calming influence of Merlot to the structured core."

    One of the most reliable producers in Napa Cab in any given vintage, it is a stunner at this kind of pricing. Cool, pure cassis, plum, and vanilla aromas lead to a palate full of bright red fruit, graphite, blackberry, and sage. Fine-grain tannins carry through a mouthwatering, long finish. This is a terrifically proportioned Cabernet that speaks more to an old-school side of Napa and is a terrific representation for those who are looking for a style that over-delivers without being over-the-top.

    In a world of ever increasing prices and several vintages of drought influenced low yields, it has become almost impossible to find high quality Napa Valley Cab for under $20...but that's exactly what is in this bottle! For years now Buehler have been a fairly under the radar staff favorite at K&L but the 2015 is better than ever and picked up several 90+ reviews. Our long relationship with this property has allowed us to offer this 2015 beauty at the lowest price in the country. It doesn't get any better than this for Napa Cab at this price.
    Top Value! Drink from 2018 to 2022

    For as long as I’ve worked at K&L, I’ve been consistently wowed by how much Cabernet these wines deliver for the dollar and I was reminded again of that qualitative bargain this past week while tasting the recent 2015 vintage: yet another example, loaded with dark fruit, fine tannins, and real California grit, yet without all the fancy marketing and exaggerated hype. Simply put, it’s a Cabernet for people who like to drink real Cabernet. Made with 30% estate-grown fruit near St. Helena, it’s a blend of 90% Cabernet with 10% Merlot just to soften the edges a bit and bolster some of that fruit character. The best part about the Buehler Cabernets (on top of the quality and the price) is the fact that you can age them for another decade or drink them now with some decanting. Buehler is one of the true family-owned gems of the Napa Valley, a winery that for almost three decades has been producing honest expressions from its 300 acre hillside estate just above Conn Valley. The prices remain reasonable from vintage to vintage because producing value-oriented wines is part of Buehler's philosophy. In an era where getting the most money for your bottle has become commonplace in Napa, it's refreshing to find a bit of that throwback mentality.
