THE CORE represents the very best of Buoncristiani Cabernet Sauvignon from the 2018 vintage. Each year the four Buoncristiani Brothers craft multiple single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignons from premium Napa Valley vineyard blocks, and THE CORE is the culmination of meticulous blending of carefully selected lots. Choice barrels are folded together slowly over the course of two years, diligently creating a balance of power and elegance, and then captured in bottle without fining or filtration. At the heart of the Buoncristiani portfolio is THE CORE.

If you are trying to obtain or impress your friends with the best of the best Cabs that Napa wineries have to offer, going for big brands will shell you out in the range of $350 to $500 or even higher. If you are planning to get the best Cab and also demonstrate your astute understanding of Cab quality and taste, this Cab is the one for the money! This is not a cheap wine but this is the best Cab that Napa offers at the lowest possible price.

This is a magical quintessential Napa Valley Cabernet. I collect it every year and and it develops into a polished long silky finish. Price point is so reasonable!

My wife and I found this winery in 2010 and have visited almost every year since superb wine, great people! The Core is one of the better Cabs you will ever have. I've been saving bottles of the Core from every vintage since 2007 and just enjoyed a bottle of the 2007. Absolutely wonderful!

The CORE is one of the absolute best Napa cabernet sauvignons. My wife and I have vintages back to 2009 and they continue to amaze us. The depth of this wine is amazing and it has the ability to go far into the future. Simply put, we love the CORE!
