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, and a lengthy persistent finish. Precise amounts of Malbec and Petite Verdot 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.
The 2018 marks the tenth vintage of Buoncristiani Chardonnay, a wine that focuses primarily on fruit, minerality and balanced acidity, with secondary flavors of integrated new French oak richness framed by a full mid palate and a lingering finish.
Complex aromas of ripe ruby grapefruit and jalapeño jam lead way to layered flavors of mango, honeysuckle and vanilla wafer. Zesty citrus flavors, tropical fruit and ultra bright acidity linger in the crisp, clean finish.
The ultra complex aroma profile of this wine exhibits layers of fresh white peaches, caramelized apricots, honeysuckle, orange blossom, subtle vanilla, and sweet spices. Flavors on the palate mirror white stone fruits, minerals, and exotic spices with a full body, vibrant acidity, and a long lingering finish.
A different beast, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) is more backward and reticent, and while it needs 4-5 years of bottle age, is packed with potential. Both black and blue fruits, earth, tobacco, and freshly crushed rock notes all flow to a full-bodied 2016 that has plenty of fine tannins, remarkable purity of fruit, and beautiful intensity and length. Do your best to give this some bottle age, and you’ll be rewarded with a phenomenal Napa Valley Cabernet that will keep for 2-3 decades.
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 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.
Bright, medium ruby color with purple overtones. The wine offers generous aromas of violet, plum, anise, cassis, and mint with restrained floral overtones.

Elegant and light on the palate, with medium body and medium ripe tannins with juicy plum, cassis, blackberry, and dusty coffee notes in the background, all magnified on a long and subtle finish
