2011 Buoncristiani Syrah, Napa Valley
The Buoncristiani brothers created the series “Artistico” to fuse winemaking passion with other forms of art expression. Our Syrah label features original artwork to complement our blend for each vintage.
Enticing aromas of blueberry, blackberry, dark chocolate, white pepper and exotic spices lead to a fleshy mouthfeel that oozes with yum-factor. Our 2011 Napa Valley Syrah promises to deliver a smile after each sip. Expect to find wild blackberry, violet, blueberry, dark chocolate, white pepper, exotic spice, bright fruit and the Buoncristiani signatures of balance, depth on the mid palate, and a lengthy persistent finish. Seventeen months aging in 40% new French oak barrels rounded out the palate even further, while adding more texture, aroma, and flavor components.
