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.

A blend of Rhone grapes (Syrah and Grenache) and tribute to the beautifully dark and mysterious Syrah dominated Norther Rhone blends from Hermitage, France. Deep and inky violet color leads to comapct and focused aromas of elderberry and black fig framed by hints of smoky charcoal. Smooth and supple mouthfeel shows a blast of dark cherry fruit and savory notes of olive, bacon fat, an spicy white pepper. Well integrated tannins and balnce ultimately define this wine which will only get more elegant over the next 5-10 years. Young and vibrant now, the Cuvee Hermitage should pair wonderfully with barbeque, smoked meats, and pretty much anything cooked on the grill.
