Cardinale Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
With every vintage I strive to find the balance points across an artist’s palette of appellations and vineyards and the flavors that define them. This is the promise of Cardinale—a wine that delivers a unique signature and expression that is defined and driven by the vintage rather than any singular vineyard. Despite past experiences with each of these vineyard sites year after year, I never know the final array of vineyards that will ultimately make up the blend that is Cardinale until it is all said and done. That is the hedonistic pleasure, the creative expression and the joy of discovery that I hope to share with the Cardinale drinker. The 2016 is a mélange of blackberry, dark cherry, blueberry pie, mocha, slate, graphite, and toasted vanilla that will awaken you to the incredible vintage that was and is 2016.
