Winemaker's Notes

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 Merlot were carefully folded into the final blend to add complexity and depth to the profile. 20 Months aging in 85% new French oak barrels rounded out the palate even further, while adding more texture, aroma and flavor.

Blend: 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Malbec, 2% Merlot

Critical Acclaim

"Moving up to the flagship wines, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa is composed of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Malbec and 2% Merlot (374 cases produced). This seamless, flawlessly constructed wine exhibits lots of blueberry, blackberry, cassis and spring flower characteristics as well as subtle background oak. Full-bodied, opulent and Margaux-like, only richer and denser, this sensational 2010 once again proves how impressive this vintage can be. Enjoy it over the next 15-20 years. "
95 Points

"The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon bursts from the glass with expressive dark red fruit, crushed flowers, tobacco, anise and sweet spices. Pointed and beautifully articulated, the 2010 impresses for its persistence and class. The Cabernet Sauvignon is a lovely wine to drink now and over the next decade. The 2010 is 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Malbec and % Merlot."
