  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 92

    Both of these wines showed well, with the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon (94% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc) revealing slightly more structure as well as a more reserved style. This impressive endowed 2009 exhibits lots of creme de cassis, licorice, violets and new oak. A big, full-bodied wine with tannin to shed, so it may require some additional bottle age. Both wines are multi-AVAs from five vineyards spread across Napa Valley. It should last two decades.

    (includes 3% petit verdot, 2% malbec and 1% cabernet franc; mostly from Coombsville fruit): Saturated ruby. Medicinal black cherry, blackberry liqueur and licorice on the very ripe nose. Fat and thick but not heavy, with a strong acid spine supporting the flavors of dark berries and dusty spices. Finishes with big, chewy, slightly tough tannins that will require a minimum of five or six years of aging. Shows a surprising light touch for such a big boy. Rebeka Wineburg makes this wine, with Celia Welch consulting here since 2008.

    Intense and potent, with a rich mix of lead pencil, graphite, dark and dried berry, cedar and anise flavors. Maintains its intensity and persistence on the long, chewy finish.

    Really disappointing for the price - flat, limited finish. An above average cabernet at an exceptional cabernet price point. Might have been too young, but I just don't see it improving much. Terrible QPR.

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.
