2019 Cardinale Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
Guided by the vintage character of each year, Cardinale blends the distinctive flavors and personality of individual Napa Valley appellations into a richly layered, balanced whole. The final blend of the 2019 Cardinale Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon was born from eight appellations, eleven vineyards and 32 individual wine lots. With its great primary fruit characters, as well as tons of rose petals, cedarwood, espresso bean and toast, the 2019 vintage has a compelling savory aspect - a perfect accompaniment to the intense, dark fruit of the mountains. The 2019 vintage is a blend of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Merlot.

Cardinale is one of the oldest Oakville wineries in Napa Valley. Cardinale only makes one wine each year. The wine consists mainly of Cabernet Sauvignon with a smaller part of Merlot. The winery has vineyards throughout the Napa Valley, including Diamond Mountain, Spring Mountain, Howell Mountain, and Mount Veeder. A blend is made from all individual plots every year, so a different unique Cardinale every year.
