The Buoncristiani O.P.C. is our Napa Valley proprietary red blend. In the quest to create a wine uniquely ours, we discovered the synergy of marrying Napa Syrah with Cabernet Sauvignon, while also folding in further complexity of texture and flavor with Napa Merlot and Malbec blenders. Grapes are sourced from some of Napa’s most prestigious vineyards including Hyde, Stagecoach, Caldwell, and Bennett.
Just like our winemaking fathers before us, with "Ol' Pa's Claret" we four brothers continue the family tradition of handcrafting blends that help accentuate the enjoyment of life.
92 Points, Wine Enthusiast:
"This is very full-bodied and tannic, with a dusty astringency that’s too young to drink now, but it should age well. Balanced and dry, it has an impressively ripe core of cassis, spicy plums and cherry liqueur that should sweeten when those tannins fall out. Best after 2010. S.H." (3/1/2008)
