Grapes sourced from our hillside Cabernet Sauvignon block that we refer to as Kindly Well
These vines typically give us just over two tons per acre of small-berried clusters
Used as part of our Cabernet Sauvignon blend, we’ve reserved just a nip of this intense, earthy wine for Premiere Napa Valley
Aged for 22 months in French oak before being bottled
Buehler Vineyards is a small, family-owned winery located in the mountains east of St. Helena in Napa Valley. Situated north of Pritchard Hill and Conn Valley, near the base of Howell Mountain, our hillside vineyards are planted primarily to Cabernet Sauvignon, with a smaller block of old-vine Zinfandel. Our family has been farming this beautiful estate for more than 45 years. We combine that experience and the unique terroir of our hillside vineyards with low yields, meticulous vineyard management and minimalist winemaking techniques to create wines of uncommon complexity and depth, and to present these wines to wine lovers at reasonable prices. We sourced this year’s lot from our hillside Cabernet Sauvignon block we refer to as Kindly Well. These vines typically give us just over two tons per acre of small-berried clusters. Used as part of our Cabernet blend, we’ve reserved just a nip of this intense, earthy wine for Premiere Napa Valley. We will bottle 10 cases of this one-of-a-kind Cabernet lot after aging for 22 months in French oak.
