Buoncristiani Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

$99

 95 Points - limited                              A blockbuster Cabernet from one of our favorite small Napa producers that drinks like one of the highest rated Cabs of the vintage. If you are looking for that lavish, layered, trophy-styled Cabernet, the brothers Buoncristiani have delivered their best effort to date by far.  It is deep, extracted, creamy and lush, packed with sweet currant fruit and shamelessly veneered with some high quality wood.  They were clearly swinging for the fences here and connected, and by the standards of what’s in the bottle, it’s actually a value because it can hang with the top Cabs we have, making it a relative bargain.   previous vintage 95 Points Robert Parker:  "Moving up to the flagship wines, the Cabernet Sauvignon Napa is composed of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Malbec and 2% Merlot (374 cases produced). This seamless, flawlessly constructed wine exhibits lots of blueberry, blackberry, cassis and spring flower characteristics as well as subtle background oak. Full-bodied, opulent and Margaux-like, only richer and denser, this sensational 2010 once again proves how impressive this vintage can be. Enjoy it over the next 15-20 years."
