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. Due to the wine’s overwhelming popularity we proudly offer you this ninth 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 2016 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.

This Napa Malbec is truly special. Well balanced, elegantly structured with a wonderful nose and a long finish it is beautiful on the palate. Enjoy with or without food.
