Beaujolais may steal the limelight with its “Nouveau,” but other wine regions have a proud history of early release reds – designed for maximum, fresh-fruit impact. In Italy, they call it vino novella. In California, Zinfandel Nouveau was a local favorite for a long time (Joseph Phelps used to make one just for Alice Waters to serve at Chez Panisse).
Who better to revive this local tradition – and your taste buds – than California’s first premium winery? Established in 1857, Buena Vista is the darling of Robert Parker, who recently bestowed multiple 90+ point scores, praising their commitment to “higher and higher quality.”
Their 2016 Nouveau scooped a gold medal at the 2017 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition and is luscious fruit bomb, sourced from two top Zinfandel areas: Sonoma and Lodi. Pop the cork to unleash vibrant Bing cherry and raspberry flavors and revel in its refreshing finish. Order now for immediate gratification.
