Tasting Notes


The blockbuster 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon is more primary, but it does display enormous fruit concentration, massive body, and wonderful purity, balance, and elegance. It is an extraordinarily promising 2007 with awesome fruit, depth and richness as well as a long finish. This offering will be even better with 5-7 years of bottle age, and should keep for 20+ years.

The Winery


Buccella is derived from the Latin word for “mouthful,” and a mouthful is exactly what Buccella wines evoke with their big, bold, concentrated layers that make them so luxuriously flavorful. The team at Buccella is especially interested in telling a story with origins that carry depth, as well as grapes that are lush and rich such as Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.

The first vintage of these Bordeaux varieties from Carneros was in 2002 when landscapers Bill and Alicia Deem honeymooned in Napa. They established long-term leases on vineyard plots across the valley and quickly after began making their own wine under the Buccella label. The Deem family’s wines took advantage of what the Napa terroir had to offer and their wines became regarded for their colossal fruit, tannins, and power which gave them high scores with Robert Parker and aficionados from all over.
