Tasting Notes
Aroma: 

This robust wine opens with arresting aromas of black plum and cassis mingled with notes of brambleberry and star anise.

Palate: 

Rich flavors of raspberry and blackberry are complemented with notes of dark chocolate and a touch of soft baking spice. Well-balanced acidity and polished tannins lead to a superbly long finish. 

Winemaking

The Sheriff of Buena Vista proudly calls Sonoma County its home. The varietals that compose the 2016 vintage are harvested from vineyards throughout the county, including the Sonoma Valley, Russian River Valley, Moon Mountain, Sonoma Mountain, Fountaingrove, Chalk Hill, Alexander Valley and Rockpile. The individual varietals were aged separately for 10 months in a variety of new and neutral oak barrels before being blended prior to bottling.
