Greeting with notes of apple blossom and honeysuckle, this Chardonnay shows beautifully forward and bright early on in its life in the bottle. This vintage is fresh and complex with rich tones of creme brulee balancing the citrus. Mouth watering minerality completes to make this a perfect pairing for a multitude of dishes from both land and sea.

The O.P.C. is Buoncrisitani’s Napa Valley proprietary red blend. In the quest to create a wine uniquely theirs, they discovered the synergy of marrying Napa Cabernet Sauvignon with Syrah, while also folding in further complexities 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 their winemaking fathers before them, with “Ol’ Pa’s Cuvée” the four brothers continue the family tradition of handcrafting blends that enhance the enjoyment of life.

This infamous vineyard, owned and farmed by the one and only, Ulises Valdez, is home to the longtime prized clones of Wente and Robert Young Chardonnay. The wine brings both clones, 75% Wente and 25% Robert Young, providing everything we love about Chardonnay – depth, weight, finesse, brightness – all fittingly strung together in seamless harmony. The vineyard is six miles from the Pacific Ocean and contains a unique mix of sand and dense clay – the “Sebastopol Clays.” The 2015 Chardonnay shows a bright and layered nose of Meyer lemon, oyster shell and piecrust. A broad and focused palate frames a host of integrated flavors ranging from lemon curd, concrete, hazelnut and brioche.

The 2015 Eternity is a spectacular vintage! Opulent in every way, perfectly balanced, a velvety texture, firmly structured...words do not do it justice.

While both the Suckling Report and the Wine Advocate awarded this vintage of Eternity 95pts, at the end of the day, what matters most is that the 2015 Eternity is a vintage to celebrate the ordinary and the extraordinary. That is what an exceptionally beautiful wine is all about. From bud break to bottle, the ’15 Eternity responded beautifully to all the love it received. It was a short, difficult growing year. Yet, as it is often said: well-seasoned growers and winemakers, who deeply understand the collaboration, science and art of winemaking, make all the difference.

The 2015 Vintage provided beautiful fruit. Because of a cool foggy spring we had very low crop yields. This resulted in especially concentrated fruit from the steep hillsides in Bennett Valley. We harvested our 2015 Merlot on September 13th, which, was even earlier than 2014. The volcanic hillsides that are the source for our Merlot produce very small berries that have tremendous intensity and structure. Farming at the highest level, picking for balance, and making the wine with minimal intervention all contribute to what we believe is one of the top Merlot wines made in California.
