Exotically elegant, the subtle nuances of this wine are followed by a lingering finish. The nose opens to an alluring perfume of raspberry, rose hips, and mandarin followed by rich aromas of tobacco, cedar, and forest floor. Spiced throughout with cinnamon, lavender, and sage, the fruit expands in the glass and fills the palate with kirsch, cherry preserve, dried cranberries, and hints of tea, clove, and tangerine.  The mouth feel is soft and rich, with a considerable acidic lift. Toward the back, it reveals an earthen and tannic strength, and the finish is long and dominated by fine, dry tannins and dried spices and fruits.  With age this wine deepens and softens, rewarding the palate while exhibiting an even more exotic nose as the bouquet develops.

This is a bold and generous Pinot, rambunctious in its youth with plenty to give over years in the cellar. The nose is densely packed with rich notes of black cherry, blackberry, wet slate, and blood orange. Intense fresh fruits lead the palate, and the focus settles on ripe flavors of blackberry, cassis, and currants intermixed with spicy peppercorn, and tobacco notes. Brilliant acidity provides brightness and balance while firm, mouth- filling tannins emphasize structure, always a strong suit for this wine. The spicy aromatics continue through the long finish. Cellaring this wine for a decade or beyond will reveal a silky texture hidden beneath layers of strong tannins that dominate its early years.

Lightly spiced and fruity aromas of strawberry and bright cherry mix with hazelnut and fresh herbs as an introduction to this hedonistic blend of fresh fruit and earthy spice. The wine opens to a broad and soft mid-palate of black cherry, cassis, and fresh wild strawberry. The palate is elevated and brightened with a refreshing acidity that welcomes this wine to the table. The finish brings out dried flowers, fresh berries, sweet cranberry orange, allspice and cinnamon. Over the next few years, development will keep revealing sensual subtleties hidden in layers beneath the robust fruit.

Earthy, organic aromas accompanied by a fruit kissed perfume tantalize you in for a taste. The rich, tilled earth is peppered with light toasty notes, dried floral perfumes, clover, rose petal and geranium flower. Generous and ripe, the nose shows plenty of huckleberry and wild strawberry. The broad palate is generous with plum and blueberry, which complement mouth-coating tannins. While this wine will cellar nicely for 5-10 years, this is a vintage ready to drink now so buy plenty to age.

THE CORE represents the very best of Buoncristiani Cabernet Sauvignon from the 2012 vintage. Each year the four Buoncristiani Brothers craft multiple single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignons from premium Napa Valley vineyard blocks, and THE CORE is the culmination of meticulous blending of carefully selected lots. Choice barrels are folded together slowly over the course of two years, diligently creating a balance of power and elegance, and then captured in bottle without fining or filtration. At the heart of the Buoncristiani portfolio is THE CORE.

The Buoncristiani O.P.C. is our Napa Valley proprietary red blend. In the quest to create a wine uniquely ours, we discovered the synergy of marrying Napa Cabernet Sauvignon with Syrah, while also folding in further complexity of texture and flavor with Napa Malbec and Merlot blenders. Grapes are sourced from some of Napa’s most prestigious vineyards including Hyde, Stagecoach, Hossfeld and Bennett. Just like our winemaking fathers before us, with “Ol’ Pa’s Cuvée” we four brothers continue the family tradition of handcrafting blends that help accentuate the enjoyment of life.

To ensure our highest standard of quality, we source this Malbec from vineyards managed with our same strict viticultural philosophy. The 2014 blend was handcrafted from small lots harvested exclusively from ultra premium Hillside blocks in the Eastern Vaca Mountain range.
