Buoncristiani Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Including 3% Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is an inky colored 2017 that has a great nose of blueberries, blackcurrants, toasted spice, tobacco leaf, and chalky minerality. Beautifully balanced, full-bodied, and elegant on the palate, with awesome purity of fruit, it's well worth seeking out and is a slam dunk in 2017 Cabernet.
Blended with 3% Malbec and 2% Petite Verdot, the deep garnet-purple colored 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon features cedar, warm blackcurrants, black cherry compote and blueberry pie with touches of dark chocolate, dried herbs, garrigue and lavender. The palate is full-bodied, firm and fine-grained with lovely freshness and a long finish.
The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is an attractive, mid-weight wine. I would prefer to drink it over the next handful of years, while the fruit remains vibrant. Sweet red cherry, plum, flowers, mint and sweet spice all race through this inviting Cabernet from Buoncristiani.
