Cardinale Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
Chris Carpenter has done a fabulous job with the 2010 Cardinale. The wine boasts a huge center of fruit backed up by equally firm, imposing tannins. Layers of dark red fruit, mocha, cinnamon and new leather explode from the glass. The 2010 is a huge Cardinale endowed with superb depth, power and richness. At the same time, there is a mid-palate generosity and pliancy that leads me to believe the 2010 will drink beautifully once the tannins soften a touch. Hints of tar, graphite and iron add personality on the full-bodied, intense finish.
The 2010 Cardinale is an intriguing combination of dark fruits and spices. Blending five Napa mountain appellations, it opens with the scents of ripe boysenberry, dark cherry, and dragon fruit. On the palate, these fruits meld with holiday spice and Sumatra coffee bean flavors. The wine has a lush mid-body texture and a lingering finish.
86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot
Anticipated maturity: 2020-2030.
Robert Mondavi Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
A profusion of aromas - creme de cassis, black cherry coulis, anise, violet, black olive, fresh herb and smoke - spill out of the glass and scent the room. Profoundly deep, complex flavors echo the aroma with firm, well-integrated tannins, vibrant acidity and a long, cocoa-mineral finish.
Saturated red-ruby. Currant, graphite, wild herbs, cedar and sexy oak on the nose, lifted by a floral topnote. A broad and very elegant midweight, with lively cassis and floral flavors burnished by mellow oak tones. Lovely fine-grained, long cabernet with excellent lift.
Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.
With proper cellaring, this wine should give drinking pleasure through 2023.
