Cardinale Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Cardinale Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Vintage:

2010

Ratings:

96 Points, Wine Advocate

Acclaim:

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.

Tasting Notes:

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.

Blend:

86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot

Cellaring:

Anticipated maturity: 2020-2030.

Ratings:

97 Points by The Wine Advocate

Acclaim:

"The 2009 Dominus saw about 40% new oak compared to the 20% for Napanook. A seamless classic, it offers a symphony of red and black currants, Asian plum sauce, lavender, and underbrush. Sweet Christmas fruitcake characteristics emerge from this magnificent Dominus that finished at 14.5% natural alcohol (slightly higher than usual). The seamless integration of acidity, tannin, wood and alcohol, the brilliant length and overall compelling complexity and richness make it one of the great classics from this historic estate. It should drink well for 20-25 years."

Tasting Notes:

The Dominus 2009 exemplifies the finest qualities of Cabernet Sauvignon from an ideal vintage. The nose, at once powerful yet restrained, is dense and filled with pure dark berry fruit and hints of sandalwood. On the palate is a harmonious blend of fresh plum and focused minerality with tannins that are firm, round and elegant. Spherical in quality, this wine is complete from start to finish. A sublime vintage.

Blend:

86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, and 4% Petit Verdot

Cellaring:
