  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

    ($135; 15.2% alcohol) Saturated ruby. Sexy aromas of cassis, licorice, loam and toasty oak, along with torrefaction notes of bacon, coffee and mocha. Sweet, lush and outsized; a no-holds-barred cabernet with a strong element of chocolatey torrefaction. Has the sheer mid-palate density of material to support its huge, toothfurring tannins. A big boy! Mark Herold was responsible for making these wines through the 2007 vintage, with Celia Masyczek taking over in 2008. Masyczek told me she will seek to make a more refined style.

    The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon, a candidate for Cabernet of the vintage, reveals a gorgeous perfume of chocolate, black raspberries, flowers, ink, and graphite, followed by a full-bodied, textured, superbly concentrated wine with terrific purity as well as density. Drink this outstanding 2006 over the next 15-20 years.

    Tight, dense and concentrated, with a tight mix of wild and blackberry fruit that's both powerful and restrained, slowly unfolding to offer spice, mineral, sage and iodine. The long, persistent finish is framed by trim tannins.

    Very nice wine. Plush mouth feel, great flavors of fruit, spice and a bit of mineral with smooth tannins. Not a fruit bomb, but a nice big wine.

Owners Bill and Alicia Deem started their iconic brand in the 2002 to produce exceptional Cabernet and Merlot. True to its name - Buccella means "mouthful" - these wines are rich, concentrated expressions of Napa fruit. Celia Welch consults with Rebekah Wineburg on the winemaking.
