My first official wine review on 3 Day Wine Review is a real winner! Not only did this wine evolve over the course of 3 days it over delivered on the price. A 94 point wine for $31 locally in the Twin Cities market is a steal! Well done Chateau Buena Vista!!!
2014 Buena Vista Cabernet Sauvignon Chateau Buena Vista (USA, California, Napa Valley)
Day 1: Lighter in color. Nose offers toasted oak, plum, cherry and coffee beans. On the palate good use of oak and fruits and apparent and pleasing. Very balanced overall and even though it is a 2014 don’t hesitate to pop and pour. I will see where this wine goes on day 2 and 3. Should be interesting.
Day 2: Nice fruits on the nose. Oak, spices, coffee beans and rose petals. On the finish picks up a crushed rock quality. Medium plus finish and an excellent value. This is even better than day 1. 93 points.
Day 3: Even better with menthol, toasted oak, spices, dark currants and crushed rock. For concentrated effort and what an amazing value. The evolution of this wine over three days is quite remarkable. Why more people don’t see the evolution of younger wines over the course of time is mind blowing. 94 plus!!!
