Malbec has been an important variety at Buoncristiani since the beginning, finding its way into the winery’s many vintages of Cabernet Sauvignon and also playing an important role in their celebrated O.P.C. bottling. In 2008, the brothers began a new program to pay special homage to their favorite blender, by keeping some separate. Due to the wine’s overwhelming success, the 2016 vintage marks the ninth release of Buoncristiani Malbec. Handcrafted from ultra premium Hillside blocks in the Eastern Vaca Mountain range, this Malbec is dark purple in color with notes of intense black and blue berries, white pepper spice, violets, vanilla, toasty French oak, and white chocolate. The palate shows balanced acidity, depth of flavor and a fleshy, round finish. Enjoy!
