At the heart of the Buoncristiani portfolio is THE CORE, the very best of Buoncristiani Cabernet Sauvignon from the 2011 vintage.

$141.00 per Bottle
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.

Expect to find deep aromas of cassis, black cherry, incense, dark chocolate, caramelized oak, toffee, and the Buoncristiani signatures of balance, depth on the mid palate, with a lengthy persistent finish. Precise amounts of Malbec were carefully folded into the final blend to add complexity and depth to the profile.  Twenty months aging in 85% new French oak barrels rounded out the palate even further, while adding more texture, aroma and flavor.

A super complex nose leaps from the glass, showing dark and red fruits, cassis, graphite and lead pencil layered seamlessly.  A broad palate opens to reveal black fruits, hint of red currant, and fresh tobacco leaf, all leading to a mile long silky finish.

Leading into the 2014 season, drought conditions worried growers throughout Napa Valley. Yet, bud break came early and beautiful weather prevailed. Our reservoirs had filled, but water management in the vineyard was crucial.  Timely irrigation was essential to produce perfectly ripe fruit.

In the end, every piece of the puzzle came together. There were no damaging heat spikes during the growing season and ripening balanced the early bud break with an equally early harvest. What could have been a disappointing vintage turned out to be another beauty.

After very detailed selection in the vineyard, the most ideal fruit made its way to the winery. Then, pampered like the baby it was, the chosen grapes received optical sorting, barrel fermenting, and hand punch downs. Each step designed to allow a slow unfolding of the 2014 Eternity.

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.

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.

Our 2016 Jemma is marked by a deep ruby hue, with brooding, intense aromatics of spice and smoked charcuterie, laced with a dark fruit profile of cassis, pomegranate and bing cherries. Muscular and weighty on the palate, the intense fruit character is precisely framed by polished tannins and an enduring, lengthy finish. A happy pair with an impromptu date night and steak frites!

87% Cabernet Sauvignon (from Stagecoach-50%, Beckstoffer George III-40% and Ellman Estate-10%), 9% Petit Verdot (from Ellman Estate), 4% Merlot (from Hudson Vineyards). The 2016 Brothers Blend is a favorite at any table. It's readily approachable style makes it a perennial, emanating with notes of cassis, cocoa, sarsaparilla and a myriad of herbs reminiscent of Chartreuse.  Bright and fresh on the palette, it abounds with a gamut of red and black fruits from cherries to blackberries and plums, with notes of incense, oolong and pencil lead.  Walking the tight rope of a brooding, sultry expressive wine balanced by refreshing acidity and a tightly-wound core, the 2016 Brothers Blend pairs swimmingly with a range of fare from BBQ to roast duck.

The nose displays a pretty mix of violet, black fruits, orange blossom, and bergamot. On the palate the wine shows red and black current intermingled with mocha and earth notes. There is a ton of structure, and, at the same time, is very elegant. The texture feels “just right” with fine grained, supple, ripe tannins. This wine shows a little less grip in the palate than the 2013.
