Natalie's Score: 92/100

This smooth, supple Californian red wine is produced by Buena Vista winery which is housed in an historic building in the heart of Sonoma. The French company Boisset now owns this winery. The pinot noir grapes grow in the cool climate of Carneros, with cooling breezes from the San Francisco Bay. Lovely layers of liquid satin, black cherries and some dark spice. Packed with flavour yet not heavy. Aromas of mocha and smoke. Medium- to full-bodied and very supple. Pair with pork chops.

Pinot Noir food pairings: roast chicken, roast veal, planked salmon.

Remarkable Roast Chicken Wine

Reviews and Ratings

Buena Vista 2013 Pinot Noir is from the Boisset Collection. The French company Boisset now owns this winery and this Pinot Noir is produced from grapes sourced in cool-climate Carneros. This medium-bodied PN is smooth, satiny with liquid red cherries and smoky spice flavours on the palate. Buena Vista Winery was founded in 1969. Enjoy now with grilled lamb chops. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
