2010 Buena Vista Winery Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon, Sonoma County, CA, $16 (S) – Rating 89

Very easy drinking and immediately approachable. Excellent restaurant choice…good price…no decanting required. A rich nose of black cherry, dark spice and dark chocolate. A jammy mouth-feel but interestingly lean on the finish with soft tannins and balanced acidity. Flavors of cherry and plum with a bit of raspberry and spice with espresso on the finish.

An excellent value Pinot Noir with a rich, round and soft texture. A bouquet of red plum and raspberry with notes of herb and espresso. Soft tannins with flavors of red berry fruit, plum raspberry and ripe strawberry. An intriguing franco-earthiness in the finish. Buy This Wine

2009 Buena Vista Winery Chardonnay, Carneros, CA, $20 (S) – Rating 4.0

A lush full mouth-feel (typical Carneros Chardonnay body) with plenty of acidity to keep things interesting, especially at the $20 price point. An intriguing nose of apple, pear and citrus with notes of caramel and a hint of nuttiness. The palate is treated to flavors of pear and pineapple with added notes of caramel and minerality. Great with food or as a stand-alone sipper. Buy This Wine
