98 points- new Cult Cabernet                      

Hand-crafted by renowned winemaker Philippe Melka alongside the world's most recognized winemaking consultant, Michel Rolland, these small lot Cabernets are carefully sourced from a patchwork of Napa Valley's most prized vineyards in Rutherford, Oakville, Saint Helena, and Pritchard Hill, including Beckstoffer's To Kalon and Las Piedras Vineyards. Extremely limited.

98 Points Jeb Dunnuck:
"The flagship is the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Alejandro Bulgheroni, a blend of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot that spent 21 months in 77% new French oak barrels. More crème de cassis, toasted bread, graphite, chocolate, incense, and tobacco notes emerge from this stunner, which offers full-bodied richness and power paired with a weightless, elegant texture, rocking tannins, and a finish that won't quit. The tannin quality here is brilliant, as is the balance, and it's certainly one of the gems in the vintage. Give bottles 3-4 years (it can be drunk today with plenty of pleasure) and enjoy over the following 25 years or more."

97 Points Robert Parker: "The Alejandro Bulgheroni 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate was picked September 25 to October 2 and was fermented in oak, concrete, stainless and puncheon. It contains 3% Petit Verdot and was aged in 77% new French oak. Very deep garnet-purple in color, it sings effortlessly of warm black and red currants, blackberry coulis and charcuterie with nuances of black olives, chocolate box, menthol and fragrant earth with touches of cigar box and truffles. Full-bodied, the palate has wonderful richness and depth, with firm, super ripe, grainy tannins and fantastic poise, finishing very long and very classy. 67 cases were made."

97 Points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): 'The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Alejandro Bulgheroni is sleek, polished and flamboyant to the core. The top wine in this range, it offers a heady concoction of inky dark fruit, crushed raspberry, mocha, dried flowers, spice and rose petal, all wrapped together in a stylish package that delivers the goods. The 2018 is superb."

...This is the first time I have seen these wines from Alejandro Bulgheroni, a globe-trotting Argentinian/Italian entrepreneur who owns what is an impressive lineup of vineyards from Barossa Valley in Australia to Brunello di Montalcino in Italy, Bordeaux in France, Patagonia in Argentina, and now his own property in St. Helena in Napa Valley. Philippe Melka and Michel Rolland, two French kingpins of oenology, are consultants for his Cabernet Sauvignons."
