2018 BUONCRISTIANI O.P.C. NAPA VALLEY PROPRIETARY RED

$70.00 $70.00

Driven by the synergy of blending Cabernet Sauvignon with Syrah and rounding out the complexity and texture of the blend with Merlot and Malbec, the Buoncristiani brothers have found their secret recipe. Grapes for the O.P.C. are sourced from some of Napa’s most prized vineyards, including Hyde, Stagecoach, Hossfeld, and Bennett, creating a wine that further enhances the enjoyment of life.

The brothers run all aspects of their business, from growing and production to sales and marketing, adding a personal touch to every bottle produced. The relatively cool 2018 vintage initially produced wines with a tightly bound structure, like a fresh rosebud just before bloom, a bit firm upon the first impression, but then slowly unfolding its layers of complexity with each moment, revealing a very intriguing wine. Reviewed more than a year ago, the wine has blossomed into something extraordinary and is possibly their best version yet.

2018 BUONCRISTIANI O.P.C. NAPA VALLEY PROPRIETARY RED

"...inky colored and has a classy nose of cassis, violets, tobacco, lead pencil, and peppery herbs. Playing in the medium to full-bodied end of the spectrum, it offers good acidity, a focused texture, and the purity and elegance that's the hallmark of the 2018 vintage. It's going to be better with 2-3 years of bottle age and should keep for a solid decade."

"..Deep garnet-purple colored, it offers up alluring notes of stewed plums, Black Forest cake and blackberry pie with suggestions of violets, star anise and tilled soil. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is packed with spicy black fruit flavors, supported by finely grained tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing on a lingering peppery note."

92 Points
"The 2018 Red Blend O.P.C. races out of the glass with an exotic mélange of red cherry, raspberry, rose petals, cinnamon and blood orange. The tannins are potent, but there is just enough fruit to balance things out. Give it a few years to soften."
92 Points

"Aromas of blackcurrant, wild blackberry, clove, bark and some peppercorn. It’s medium-bodied with firm, sleek tannins. Lovely freshness to the layers of black fruit and dried spices... Try from 2021."
