2013 Buoncristiani Malbec, Napa Valley
93 Points - "Bold in an exotic, richly layered wine that captures the essence of the Buoncristiani style." - Antonio Galloni
Malbec has been an important variety at Buoncristiani since the beginning, finding its way into our many vintages of Buoncristiani Cabernet Sauvignon and also playing an important role in our Buoncristiani O.P.C. In 2008 we started a new program to pay special homage to our favorite blender by keeping some separate. Due to the wine’s overwhelming popularity we proudly offer you this sixth release of Buoncristiani Malbec.
To ensure our highest standard of quality, we source this Malbec from vineyards managed with our same strict viticultural philosophy. The 2013 blend was handcrafted from small lots harvested exclusively from ultra premium Hillside blocks in the Eastern Vaca Mountain range.
