Cardinale Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

Cardinale Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

Vintage:

2008

Ratings:

96 Points, The Wine Advocate

Acclaim:

Over 1,000 cases of the 2008 Cardinale were made from a blend of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 9% Merlot. Interestingly, the To-Kalon portion is the only fruit source located on the valley floor, which is not surprising given Jess Jackson's propensity to buy, plant and source fruit from high elevation hillside and mountain sites.

Tasting Notes:

The 2008 exhibits a dense purple color along with sweet kirsch, unsmoked cigar tobacco, toasty oak and black currant characteristics. The wine hits the palate with a resounding opulence, full-bodied richness, moderate, sweet, well-integrated tannins and a long, heady finish. There is a floral component in the 2008 that was not noticeable in the 2007. This beautiful, full-bodied wine was aged 21 months in 100% new French oak.

Blend:

91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot

Cellaring:

Slightly more evolved than the 2007, the 2008 should last for 20-25+ years.
