Guided by the vintage character of each year, Cardinale assembles the distinctive flavors and personality of individual Napa Valley appellations into a richly layered, balanced whole. The final blend of the 2019 Cardinale Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon was born from eight appellations, eleven vineyards, and 32 individual wine lots. With its great primary fruit characters, but also tons of rose petal, cedar, espresso bean, and pain grillé, the 2019 vintage has a compelling savory aspect– a perfect frame for the intense, dark fruit of the mountains. Whether I’m at home in my kitchen blending spice rubs or crafting Cardinale, having a rich array of uniquely different components available to combine is a true joy, and I hope you enjoy the results as much as I do.
