2014 Vintage


It’s polished, pure and elegant, even at this early stage of its bottled life. The mountain-grown fruit from Veeder Peak on Mount Veeder was the foundation of the 2013 Cardinale, lending it sturdy structure and powerful fruit concentration. In contrast, Spring Mountain District (Yverdon, Wurtele and Spring Mountain Vineyard) showed strong during the blending of 2014 Cardinale and is the base to which Veeder Peak and sites in the Howell Mountain, Diamond Mountain and other sub-appellations added complexity. Spring Mountain’s textbook floral aromas, finer tannins and vibrant dark-red fruit give the 2014 seamlessness and approachability now, yet it has the acid and tannin backbone to allow it to mature gracefully in the cellar.
