2016 O.P.C. Proprietary Red - Ol' Pa's Cuvée
Napa Valley, California
Case of 12
1,200 cases produced
92 pts - Antonio Galloni, Vinous
Grapes: 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Malbec, 24% Syrah, 4% Merlot
Tasting Notes: Creamy, voluptuous and super inviting, the O.P.C. will drink well with minimal cellaring. The blend varieties work nicely to soften some of the tannic clout of the Cabernet, which in turn allows the lush fruit - always a signature of these super-expressive, generous wines - to shine through.
The Buoncristiani O.P.C. is our Napa Valley proprietary red blend. In the quest to create a wine uniquely ours, we discovered the synergy of marrying Napa Cabernet Sauvignon with Syrah, while also folding in further complexity of texture and flavor with Napa Malbec and Merlot blenders. Grapes are sourced from some of Napa's most prestigious vineyards including Hyde, Stagecoach, Hossfeld and Bennett. Just like our winemaking fathers before us, with "Ol' Pa's Cuvée" we four brothers continue the family tradition of handcrafting blends that help accentuate the enjoyment of life.
