“We wanted to create a wine that would be representative not only of The Count of Buena Vista’s role as the first sheriff in San Diego County, but that would be worthy of every sheriff in America today. This powerful wine is brimming with personality. It’s authoritative and loyal, a bold combination of Cabernet, Merlot, Petite Sirah, Syrah, and Grenache. Like the men and women who are elected to serve their counties, this wine has a robust magnetism that commands a room (or dinner table) and bridges the gap between traditional and extraordinary.”
The Sheriff of Buena Vista is deserving of its name. This bold 2016 Sonoma County Red Wine is an authoritative blend of Petite Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Syrah, Petite Verdot, Mission and Cabernet Franc. This robust wine opens with arresting aromas of black plum and cassis mingled with notes of brambleberry and star anise. 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. Pair it with a Hungarian goulash or a hearty steak.
