Producer Notes

Owners Bill and Alicia Deem started their iconic brand in the 2002 to produce exceptional Cabernet and Merlot. True to its name - Buccella means "mouthful" - these wines are rich, concentrated expressions of Napa fruit. Celia Welch consults with Rebekah Wineburg on the winemaking.

Issue Issue 162

(includes 3% petit verdot, 2% malbec and 1% cabernet franc; mostly from Coombsville fruit): Saturated ruby. Medicinal black cherry, blackberry liqueur and licorice on the very ripe nose. Fat and thick but not heavy, with a strong acid spine supporting the flavors of dark berries and dusty spices. Finishes with big, chewy, slightly tough tannins that will require a minimum of five or six years of aging. Shows a surprising light touch for such a big boy. Rebeka Wineburg makes this wine, with Celia Welch consulting here since 2008.

Issue 209
Drink Dates 2013-2033

Both of these wines showed well, with the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon (94% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc) revealing slightly more structure as well as a more reserved style. This impressive endowed 2009 exhibits lots of creme de cassis, licorice, violets and new oak. A big, full-bodied wine with tannin to shed, so it may require some additional bottle age. Both wines are multi-AVAs from five vineyards spread across Napa Valley. It should last two decades.

Drink Dates 2012-2022

Intense and potent, with a rich mix of lead pencil, graphite, dark and dried berry, cedar and anise flavors. Maintains its intensity and persistence on the long, chewy finish.

Issue 1

Has a very pretty aromatic impression of briary black fruit, powdered violet, vanilla and mocha, with the palate rounding out with air to show textured black fruits, developing intense focus and purity.

Really disappointing for the price - flat, limited finish. An above average cabernet at an exceptional cabernet price point. Might have been too young, but I just don't see it improving much. Terrible QPR.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
