A fantastic new Napa Red discovery - highly recommended while this small-production gem is still available.
93 Points Robert Parker: "Composed of 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Syrah, 20% Malbec and 14% Merlot, the 2015 Proprietary Red Blend O.P.C. displays a deep garnet-purple color and nose of black cherry compote, blackberry pie and wild blueberries with hints of violets, chocolate box and anise. Full-bodied and voluptuously fruited in the mouth, it has soft, rounded tannins and great expression, finishing long and spicy."
previous vintage 95 points (Editors’ Choice) Wine Enthusiast: "Just gorgeous. Floods the mouth with decadent black currant, cherry, chocolate, anise, beef jerky and smoky oak flavors that stun for their addictive deliciousness. Yet it is perfectly dry, and the balance of rich, ripe tannins, acidity and smoky oak is near perfect. The wine is a blend of Bordeaux varieties and Syrah, from esteemed vineyards including Hyde, Stagecoach and Caldwell."
The young Buoncristiani brothers have harnessed their shared passion for creating handcrafted, premium wines and have quickly created a buzz about the brand. Their family winery in the Napa Valley has turned out a Proprietary Red that has been knocking off more famous names in a variety of comparative tastings, including labels that fetch more than three times its price!
