The winery's colorful founder, The Count of Buena Vista, pioneered premium winemaking in California. A tireless and passionate devotee of California wine, The Count imported hundreds of premium vines from Europe, dug Sonoma's first wine caves, introduced innovative viticulture techniques, and wrote the first treatise on California wine. Buena Vista Winery honors his legacy, bold vision, and commitment to excellence through this red wine - the Founder's Red Wine.
The 2014 Founder's Red Wine offers enticing aromas of rich, dark chocolate and soft baking spices. Upon the palate, dark berry flavors, plum skin and mocha mingle with hints of cinnamon and vanilla. Nicely structured and well-balanced, this wine has a long, dense finish that lingers long after the first sip. Try it alongside BBQ beef or country-style pork ribs.
