The Revenge

Red Wine

The Revenge Red Wine from Buena Vista Winery avenges Count Agoston Haraszthy’s untimely death by a crocodile in Nicaragua in 1869. After leaving Buena Vista in 1868, the Count traveled south to pursue an ambition for sugar growing for rum production. Less than a year after arriving, the brilliant, yet flamboyant life of the Count ended abruptly when he fell from a tree branch while crossing a crocodile-infested stream. The Count has returned to Buena Vista and adorned this bottle with a gilded crocodile to show the passion of the Count can never be struck down! Revenge is his!

Tasting Notes

Ruby red color. 


Dark fruit aromas of black plum, blackberry and a hint of violet.


Bold flavors of espresso, toasted almond, black cherry and a touch of black pepper coat the palate. Fine-grained tannins and balanced acidity lead to a long and intense finish.

Vintage Notes: 

The Revenge is an unforgiving blend, bringing together Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc harvested from distinguished vineyards across the Napa Valley. From St. Helena, Diamond Mountain and Atlas Peak, the fruit was hand harvested and fermented with extended maceration. It was aged for 17 months in 100% French oak, 35% new, before being bottled unfiltered.
