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.

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.

The 2014 Estate Cabernet provokes exquisite expectations with its presentation of deep dark sienna and touches of ruby on the rim of the glass. This is followed by an intensely concentrated nose of dark black berries and cassis with additions of cedar, cherries and chocolate. While on the palate you experience a velvety entrance that remains round and rich with layers of cherry, sage, boysenberries, plum liquor and bergamot. Safely said, this beauty will satisfy all of the senses as it lingers for a long finish.

Though we have sourced fruit in the past for the Jemma and Brothers Blend, 2014 marks our first vineyard designate bottling from Beckstoffer Georges 111. This 300-acre parcel, located in Rutherford, was first purchased by Beaulieu founder Georges de Latour in 1928 and called Beaulieu Vineyard Number 3. It was home to BV’s Rutherford Cabernets made by the renowned winemaker Andre Tchelistcheff. These wines achieved wide acclaim in the 1960’s and 70’s, establishing BV’s pre-eminence in the making of fine Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Purchased by Beckstoffer Vineyards in 1988, the vineyard has since been replanted using new Cabernet Sauvignon clones with tighter spacing and advanced trellising systems, enhancing both quality and grape tonnage.
 
Lovely deep crimson-ruby color, with an intense bouquet of violet and cassis laced with wisps of herbal aromas like a breeze blowing across hills of lavender and thyme. Creamy on the palate with a bit of oak and caramel to back up the black fruit, plum and anise. Crisp acidity gives the wine real dimension and length on the palate with very ripe and subtle tannins and sweet cherry fruit on the extremely long finish.

The wine is redolent with heavy aromas of wild black fruit, dusty bramble, anise, subtle oak spiciness and forest floor herbs.
