This is a big case of small production wines! It's a perfect "bang for your buck," for wine drinking anytime, in all its new iterations. These are three tiny productions. The 2015 Tela Cabernet is made by Rolando Herrera, from Coombsville in Napa. The 2016 Buoncristiani “OPC” is made with grapes sourced from the Hyde, Stagecoach, Hossfeld and Bennett vineyards, and made by Jay Buoncristiani. The 2018 Vinoce St. Helena Cabernet (Yes, St. Helena!) from Brian Nuss.
The O.P.C. is Buoncristiani’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.
The needle goes through the cork and extracts a small amount of wine. When the needle is removed, the cork self-heals - no hole, and no air enters or escapes. It allows you to taste a wine that you are laying down, and to drink your favorite VC wines without opening a whole bottle.
