Buoncristiani Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2006
The beginning of the 2006 growing season was somewhat cool and wet prompting a decision to heavily thin most of our Cabernet Sauvignon fruit to nearly 1 cluster per shoot. Besides a heat-spiked June, the balance of the summer and fall delivered mild and mellow warm weather, allowing for even, steady ripening of the small crop. This resulted in excellent concentration of dark berry flavors, ripe fleshy tannin, and deep dark pigment. 20 Months aging in 80% new French oak barrels rounded out the palate even further, while adding more texture, aroma, and flavor components. Expect to find deep aromas of cassis, blackberry, dark chocolate, caramelized oak, toffee, and the Buoncristiani signatures of balance, depth on the mid palate, and a lengthy persistent finish.
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
