A beautifully balanced wine endowed with gorgeous textural finesse and depth

“LAYERS OF DARK RED FRUIT, MOCHA, CINNAMON AND NEW LEATHER EXPLODE FROM THE GLASS”

96 points

“Chris Carpenter has done a fabulous job with the 2010 Cardinale. The wine boasts a huge center of fruit backed up by equally firm, imposing tannins. Layers of dark red fruit, mocha, cinnamon and new leather explode from the glass. The 2010 is a huge Cardinale endowed with superb depth, power and richness. At the same time, there is a mid-palate generosity and pliancy that leads me to believe the 2010 will drink beautifully once the tannins soften a touch. Hints of tar, graphite and iron add personality on the full-bodied, intense finish.... The ability to blend fruit from various top-notch sites works great here. Anticipated maturity: 2020–2030.”
