About Alejandro Bulgheroni

Founded only recently in 2014, international maestro Alejandro Bulgheroni's Napa Valley venture has had a meteoric ascension. This success should come as no surprise to followers of Alejandro, who may be familiar with the excellent wines from his estates in the Barossa Valley, Brunello di Montalcino, Bordeaux, Argentina and the legendary Bodega Garzón in Uruguay. This is a winemaker with the Midas touch, and even amongst pantheons of his wines, the Lithology series from the most famous North American region shines particularly brightly.

Comprised of some of the finest lands in all of California, Bulgheroni's Napa estate is located in St. Helena at the base of the Howell and Vaca mountain ranges. Since its purchase in 2014, no expense has been spared, and no stone left unturned in the quest to produce the best wines possible, with a total upgrade of all infrastructure and equipment.

The team assembled by Bulgheroni reads like a "who's who" of legendary winemaking. It includes both Philippe Melka (Dominus, Pétrus), as well as arguably the most in-demand consultant in the world, Michel Rolland. Together, they have crafted a range of wines under the "Lithology" label, reserved for single-vineyard expressions of the finest, most heralded terroirs in Napa.

Alejandro Bulgheroni Lithology Beckstoffer Dr Crane 2018 (3x75cl)

Possibly the wine of the vintage, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Lithology Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard is another incredible wine from this estate that has everything: stunning complexity, full-bodied richness, flawless balance, and incredible length. Revealing a dense purple color as well as Graves-like notes of blackcurrants, cold fireplace, graphite, chocolate, and smoked tobacco, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, flawless balance, and ultra-fine tannins. Based on 99% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Cabernet Franc that was brought up 20 months in 70% new French oak, this thrilling 2018 offers pleasure today yet will evolve for 30-40+ years. Hats off to the team at Alejandro Bulgheroni!

Alejandro Bulgheroni Lithology Beckstoffer To Kalon 2018 (3x75cl)

Jeb Dunnuck (100)

Pure perfection, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Lithology Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard is a nuclear fruit bomb of a wine, offering massive richness and depth while being as graceful as a ballerina, with no sensation of weight or heaviness. Classic To Kolan crème de cassis, black raspberries, flowery incense, spice, and tobacco notes all define the bouquet, and it’s full-bodied, with a layered, multi-dimensional texture, ultra-fine tannins, and a great finish. It has another 2-3 decades of prime drinking ahead of it. This cuvée is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, sourced from four blocks in To Kalon, aged 20 months in 82% new French oak.
