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 fourth 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 2011 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.

HARVEST:  October 17th through October 28th, 2011

AGING:   20 months in French oak barrels, 75% new French oak


WINEMAKER:   Jay Buoncristiani

There are a few well constructed Malbecs in the Valley this is in my top 3 of all time! This wine screams hold on loosely and don't let go! Kinda like the song! Big dark jammy fruit on the palate, the nose gives some earth notes terroir driven. The body is well defined followed by a finish that grabs your tongue and says another please? I could smell the aroma of this wine all day! It brings you to the glass' Cheers Deano
