Buehler 2016 Zinfandel
Buehler Zinfandel was aged for 12 months in a combination of French and American oak barrels, 20% of which were new. At this level of “new wood”, the up-front endearing quality of Zinfandel can assert itself. Aromas of a briar patch on a hot summer day carry over to the palate and are carried in a mouth-filling, deeply layered, juicy package. The wine was crafted for immediate enjoyment but for those who enjoy a more complex wine displaying some bottle-aged character, aging for another two to three years is a good option.
A delicate style of zinfandel that shows red berries, tobacco and leather on the nose. Lean tannin structure and a medium body. Fresh and fruity finish. Plenty of good fruit. Drink now. Synthetic cork.
