CARDINALE Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley 2012

The 2012 Cardinale is a masterpiece of a wine from Chris Carpenter, composed from vineyards spanning across the entire Napa Valley. This blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13% Merlot opens with intoxicating aromas of blackcurrants, black cherries, violets, graphite, mocha, spices and a hint of white truffle, which all take shape in the glass. On the palate this full-bodied, opulent wine shows outstanding depth and concentration, but remains beautifully balanced. It continues to impress with its gorgeous round, polished texture and long, multi-demsional finish. A complete wine with an incredible future ahead. (Best 2017-2034) - January, 2016 (JD)
