Expect to find wild blackberry, violet, blueberry, dark chocolate, white pepper, exotic spice, bright fruit and the Buoncristiani signatures of balance, depth on the mid palate, and a lengthy persistent finish. Seventeen months aging in 40% new French oak barrels rounded out the palate even further, while adding more texture, aroma, and flavor components.

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.

Bright, medium ruby color with purple overtones. The wine offers generous aromas of violet, plum, anise, cassis, and mint with restrained floral overtones. On the palate, the wine has well-balanced clean fruitiness. 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.

The nose has vibrant notes of lead pencil and cassis...a very classic Bordeaux bouquet. The cassis note persists in the palate along with ripe black plum skin and tobacco

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.

“Vibrant and racy aromas of pineapple and other tropical fruits laced with citrus peel and a hint of wet stone.  A beautiful and rich mouthfeel with notes of orange blossom and nectarine all framed by lip smacking acidity.  A Chardonnay to enjoy now but worthy of several years in the cellar.”
