To ensure our highest standard of quality, we source this Syrah from vineyards managed with our same strict viticultural philosophy. The 2016 blend was handcrafted from small lots harvested exclusively from our block 1800 ft above sea level at Stagecoach Vineyards in the Vaca Mountains above Oakville, and Larry Hyde’s Hyde Las Trancas Vineyard in Oak Knoll. Sourcing and blending Syrah from these ultra premium vineyards helps us create our profile of uncompromising quality.

Expect to find wild blackberry, violet, blueberry, dark chocolate, white pepper, exotic spice, bright fruit and the Buoncristiani signatures of balance, depth on the mid palate, and a lengthy persistent finish. Seventeen months aging in 40% new French oak barrels rounded out the palate even further, while adding more texture, aroma, and flavor components.

The different vineyard and barrel components are blended in several phases creating optimum complexity while retaining balance, varietal character, and superior quality. This wine was aged in barrels for 17 months and bottled unfined and unfiltered in March of 2018.
