2009 Buoncristiani Malbec
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. We did it again in 2009 and therefore proudly offer you this second 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 ‘09 blend was handcrafted from small lots harvested exclusively from ultra premium Hillside blocks in the Eastern Vaca Mountain range.
Expect to find a dark purple color, intense black and blueberries, white pepper spice, violets, vanilla, toasty French oak, white chocolate, a broad mid palate with balanced acidity, depth of flavor, and a fleshy sexy round finish.
