Buoncristiani O.P.C. 2013

This is the 15th anniversary vintage for Buoncristiani and wow is it a good one. The 2013 growing season in Napa Valley was long and excellent, and this wine shows the hallmarks of the growing season with it's opulence and depth. Deep red fruits and notes of black currant and blackberry are counterbalanced by well-integrated French oak and firm tannins. This wine has the ability to age for 7-10+ years, but is approachable to drink in its youth. Aged for 20 months in 54% new French oak. 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Syrah, 17% Malbec, 15% Merlot.

4 out of 5 starsReviewed on March 07, 2018

Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Proprietary Red Blend O.P.C. 15th Anniversary Vintage is a blend of 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Syrah, 17% Malbec and 15% Merlot. This is a beautiful wine...has a dense ruby/purple, notes of blueberry and blackberry fruit, medium to full-bodied opulence, luscious, savory mid-palate and a style that begs for drinking now or over the next ten years."  91 Pts.
