Cardinale established itself to be in the midst of a handful of the most consistently exceptional red wines in the world. It is an intricate composition of superlative vineyard sites with stand-alone excellence. Definitely Cabernet Sauvignon, predominately from the Napa Valley, wine comes from three mountain estate vineyards on Mount Veeder, Howell Mountain and Alexander Mountain. Cardinale provides a powerful sensory experience rich in complex aromas, layered flavors and seamless texture. In the words of Robert Parker Jr.'s, The Wine Advocate, Cardinale "is one of the profound wines being produced in northern California."
