Buehler Napa Valley 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon, $16.99-$21.99, 90 points, poured core black grading blackberry purple/red and finally flaming red toward the broad clear wine ring.
Aromas began with a rather noticeable black currant, but wild-berry aromas were excellent, and hints of cardamom, leather, and cedar were pleasant.
Medium to medium-plus body with fair acidity and smooth layered tannin managed flavors reflective of the aromas and a hint of mint with poise.
Finished well on the trailing palate, hot spice, roses, and a warm 14.5% alcohol.
Paired perfectly with my spiced lamb rib chops.
