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. This year, the tools include seven appellations and 32 individual wine lots. With the right vision, we crafted the finished piece – 2018 Cardinale. Super structured and with minerality to spare, this Cabernet Sauvignon offers a real presence on the palate from start to finish. Generous notes of dark chocolate balance beautifully with a blue and black fruit flavor explosion, finishing with a subtle whisper of rose petal.
"Age-ability may not be the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of Sauvignon Blanc, but when left to evolve, this Bordeaux-style wine shows a roundness that gently offsets the crisp acidity of the noble grape. The 2019 Intrada opens with aromas of starfruit, lemongrass, and citrus fruits followed by a creamy texture on the palate, juicy acidity, and layers of complexity that call you back for another sip."

“The 2011 Cardinale has aged gracefully over time. Similar to a great Bordeaux vintage, the fruit continues to shine, and the tannins have softened, while the savory characters that defined the 2011 vintage continue to eloquently develop. With aromatics of dark cherry, sage, black pepper and toast, accompanied by flavors of bright fruit, Asian spice, and espresso bean – this wine continues to present itself beautifully and will continue to do so for decades to come.”
