The warm, but not hot growing season of 2016 was as long or longer than previous vintages and began with an early bud break and ended by the beginning of October.  With no pressure from the weather, growers were able to relax throughout the year and enjoy a warm, dry harvest.  The vintage was ripe, aromatic, and showed more restraint than the previous more opulent vintages.

A bold Pinot Noir with notes of fruit and exotic spice, this wine is enjoyable to drink now with plenty of life to give for years down the line. The nose greets with notes of watermelon, wet slate, and cassis. Fresh dark fruits lead the palate, and the focus settles on ripe flavors of blackberry and currants spiced with peppercorn. Velvety and softly chewy tannins emphasize structure, while ever-present acidity balances and brightens. The spicy aromatics and flavors continue through the long finish.

Notes of strawberry and tart pie cherry are accompanied by notes of sweet vanillin, toasted hazelnut and coffee as an introduction to this joyfully juicy blend of rich fruit and earthy spice. The wine opens to a well-integrated mid-palate of dark berries, toffee and cassis. The broad palate is elevated and brightened with a mouthwatering acidity that welcomes this wine to the table. Sassafras, herbal notes and baking spices are revealed in the satisfying finish.

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.

96 pts, Robert M. Parker Jr.
“Buoncristiani’s black-labeled 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon The Core, which is a limited cuvée of 156 cases, has a dense, opaque, black/purple color, and gorgeously vibrant, fresh and energized blueberry and blackberry fruit that dances across the palate. This full-bodied stunner is young, but certainly accessible, as most Northern California reds tend to be, but the purity, the richness, the multi-dimensional aspects are all present in this fabulous wine with a great upside. Drink it over the next 25-30 years.”
