    14.8% alcohol, 90% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc, 2% Malbec, 343 cases produced Aroma: black fig, boysenberry and some hints of smoked meats Palate: great texture - supple entry of plum, blackberry conserve with some racy raspberry adding a bit of grip at the end Impression: A beautiful followup to the stunning debut from this producer, excellent structure with smooth prune, dates and blackberry. Easily the new benchmark for California Merlot!

    Another knockout merlot from them. Easily the best california merlot out there. Strong cocoa and ripe dark fruit flavors and firm grip. Doesn't fade into the sunset like most merlots. Keeps on and on and on. Wow.

    Bright flavors of chocolatte and white pepper. A bit like a young Petrus and about ten percent of the price. A new standard for merlot, now an underappreciate grape, from Napa. Delightful.

    Buccella, along with Larkmead, Tor, and Dancing Hares, are my new favorite California cabs/cab blends. Any of these four wines in the 2005-2007 range seem to be unbelievable. The 2006 Bucella cab really stood out. I also loved their 2006 Merlot - much as I try to be snobbish about Merlot (a la Miles in Sideways), I couldn't help but love that 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.
