The BUSELLI 2013 is unfined and unfiltered, and really high quality, concentrated Cabernet, so it is throwing sediment… decanters with screens are highly recommended my friends, because THIS IS a BIG and BEAUTIFUL Wine! From one of my personal Vintages of ALL-TIME… I had to grab a case, and highly recommend one while it’s available – please note: it’s limited VIP EXCLUSIVE, and so good!

Neighbors Screaming Eagle, But Not Priced Like it… THE Exceptional 2013 Vintage of OAKVILLE NAPA VALLEY!

Buselli Vineyard was planted in 1990 in a prime location on the eastern slopes of the Vaca Mountains in Oakville, neighboring Tierra Roja Vineyard and adjacent to Screaming Eagle. The remarkable site experiences cool, foggy mornings and warm, sunny afternoons, ideal for Cabernet Sauvignon. The vineyard is sustainably tended to by hand with extreme care to produce low yields of the finest-quality super-concentrated fruit that reveals the nuances of this exceptional microclimate.

Winemakers Stacy Vogel and Legendary Winemaker Tim Milos work in a minimalistic approach to allow the characteristics of the terroir to be the primary focus of the wine, which is always unfined and unfiltered. This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is powerful and complex with soft, plush tannins from 27 months of French oak and over six years in the bottle. The 2013 vintage was exceptional in the Napa Valley, and this perfectly aged wine is absolutely rocking right now and has many years of profound enjoyment ahead.



Master Sommelier Tasting Notes, “The Buselli Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 exudes class, power, and grace in a way that every Cabernet Sauvignon drinker seeks. It has beautifully concentrated Bing cherry juice, red currants, French lavender, licorice, pipe tobacco, and vanilla spice. The penetrating, lush, deep flavors fully envelop your palate with an amazing balance and seamless elegance. It finishes long and is everything you look for in an absolute top-level Cabernet Sauvignon.” KEVIN VOGT 96 POINTS

*VIP Heads-Up: Extended Notes – This wine has been perfectly stored in a Temperature Control Warehouse, and it’s just starting to Peak! The 2013 Vintage of Napa Valley will arguably rival any vintage in History. It was THE Perfect growing Season (accordingly to Winegrowers/Vintners and Tonnage), and produced an abundance of the ripest fruit; yields were massive. For me personally I was actually living on a Vineyard in Coombsville Napa Valley at that time with my Wise, and Legendary smart-ass Father-In-Law (Fernando Delgado), my beautiful Napa Valley born-raised Wife (Yvonne Delgado), and my son (Edward Jr.) just turned One… I also made some Juice in 2013. Nonetheless my good friends, this Vintage of NAPA CAB is now virtually unobtainable in perfect condition; so if you enjoy entertaining, sipping on a Delightful Cabernet, and/or pouring wines from a Highly Collectible Historic Vintage, plus a great deal, this is for you!

PS: the 2013 SCREAMING EAGLE scored 100 POINTS …

PSS: when I decant a wine of this stature, I love to take the sediment and then blend that into a Balsamic Vinaigrette… because it adds another layer of depth to the Dressing, and it’s loaded with nutrients, antioxidants, and polyphenols! Try this Cab with a Grilled T-Bone and/or a Balsamic Glazed Pork Tenderloin. For lighter fare, try pairing with a Feta Based Salad or a Gnocci Gorganzola cream sauce. Or – Let’s just Enjoy Life on the Patio while watching the Sunset 🙂 Cheers! Salud! Salute!
