Many thanks to Jamie Goode, highlighted Silverado Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 on his website as one of his best examples of “very drinkable Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignons” that were “finished, and not just tasted”!
Silverado Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 Napa Valley, California
14.9% alcohol. Rich blackcurrant and blackberry fruit with some spicy, grippy tannins. Grippy with good balance between the ripe fruit and tarry, tannic structure. It carries the alcohol really well: a satisfying wine. 91/100
To taste the Silverado range, visit World Wine Agencies at LWTF Stand No. F10

Many thanks once again to Jancis Robinson, who listed a Von Buhl wine for the second time in this series, which features her top choice of wines for 2010.
This time was the turn of our Forster Ungeheuer Riesling Auslese 2009, described by Jancis as “a particularly open young Auslese that is truly expressive of its provenance: grapefruit syrup plus terroir and great zest”. Read more
Many thanks to Jancis Robinson for listing Von Buhl Spatburgunder among her Top 100 Sure-Fire Reds from 2010!
Mr Robert Parker awarded the 2007 Silverado Cabernet Sauvignon 92 Points recently and described it as “a gorgeous example of elegance allied to power”. This times nicely with our release of limited edition magnums, which will be available exclusively to World Wine Agencies’ customers from this month onwards.
As a result of the Von Buhl Gross Gewach tasting that WWA organised in September, the Wine & Spirit Education Trust will be using the Estate’s wines in their training courses. This is the first time ever that the WSET has used wine from a different region of Germany other than Mosel, so now thanks to David Hunter who championed the idea within the WSET, the wines from the Pfalz will be showcased to hundreds more people learning about wine. Very many thanks to David and the WSET for their support.
What a gem, thanks to Simon Woods for sharing this with us and Richard, what a talent! I will expect all our staff to be word perfect on this at their next appraisal!!
PS. Can anyone spot the missing grape variety? Answers in the comments box below please…

On September 9th Reichsrat Von Buhl once again launched their 2009 Gross Gewachs wines to the World, at a private tasting in London whilst simultaneously hosting a tasting at their Estate in Germany. By the evening of 9th September the wine world from UK to Germany and as far away as USA was twittering about these wines, as glowing praise passed between writers.
