Cardinale offers the same winning combination in vinous form: a brilliant ensemble of celebrated Napa Valley vineyards where each brings its own personality and flavor contributions to create a singular storyline of their vintage. With its array of top-notch vineyard sources and nuanced layers of dark berry, espresso bean, cedar, and rose petal, the 2015 Cardinale is truly Napa Valley at its best, with no room for wine desperados as it rides off into the sunset.
“The 2011 vintage was a much cooler, wetter vintage than many in the past. It caused us to look at our winemaking methods differently, while still holding to our stylistic foundation. As you open the album that is the 2011 Cardinale, you will find the familiar flavors of dark cherries and milk chocolate, with a velvety mouthfeel and long finish. But you will also find elements that pay homage to the vintage that helped create it with notes of currants, Asian spice, and rosemary.”
