Buena Vista North Coast Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Dark in color with a mild nose. On the mid palate the delivers some nice vibrant dark cherry notes. On the medium length finish the wine delivers some nice mocha and dark chocolate notes along with some vibrant acidity and smooth tannins, nice and dry. This is a smooth easy drinking, not fruit forward cab. There aren’t any errant minty, or herbal notes, I would give it an 88 or so. We paired it with red sauce meat spaghetti and it went well. This is a very food friendly wine and can be paired with lots of choices, but nothing too big or it will overwhelm the wine. For the price this is a good deal, and I will probably go back and get some more, but this is more of a drink now wine. From the LCBO web site, check stock:

Buena Vista North Coast Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 from LCBO

This is a solid, good value cabernet which is not a comment I often make about California cabernets at this price. It is medium-full bodied with just enough acid and tannin structure, amid some ripe blackberry/blackcurrant jam character. The length is very good, the finish shows some cab tannic grit. Good to very good length. I wanted a bit more because I like the wine. Score – 89. (David Lawrason, winealign.com, Jan. 11, 2021)
