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 – 2019 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 2020 Intrada opens with aromas of delicate flowers, citrus and green melon. A bright, lengthy palate reveals flavors of Asian pear, green figs, fresh ginger and lime zest. With layers and complexity, this wine calls you back for another sip.

“Every sub-appellation gave us beautiful fruit, beyond expectation. Blackberry, shale, hints of earth, currant, Asian spice and mountain minerality, reside alongside a breadth of structural tannins and weight from the concentration of fruit.”
