Cardinal is very old-vine Cabernet Sauvignon of classic proportions. This is a wine beyond outstanding. This is a wine that goes beyond excellence, into character, interest and emotion.
238 cases produced. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
94 Points “Youthful purple. Smoke-and-spice-tinged black and blue fruit, pipe tobacco and woodsmoke scents, along with an exotic overtone of Indian spices. Palate-staining flavors of ripe cherry, black currant, and spicecake are given structure by a spine of juicy acidity. Gains weight with air while retaining vivacity and finishes sweet and impressively long, displaying repeating spiciness and smooth, slow-building tannins. Drink 2021-2028.” – Vinous, November 2017
