Cardinale Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2010

$179

Chris Carpenter has done a fabulous job with the 2010 Cardinale. The wine boasts a huge center of fruit... 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...Hints of tar, graphite and iron add personality on the full-bodied, intense finish... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Go big or go home right? Last night and final wine of the cruise we decided to grab this....why not its 50% off right? Deep mix of garnet and ruby red core with medium garnet edges. Layered nose of a 2010 with damp forest floor, a little stinky, leaves, red berries, cigar box and more spices. Heavy tannins (7.5/10) and balanced acidity. Well integrated and full bodied. Lots of red berries on the palate with earthy undertones and notes of tobacco leaves and bramble berries. A touch of dark rocks too. Excellent wine with a beautifully long finish. Drink till 2032.

Well made. Structured. Ripe. Powerful. Not my style at all. But very classic Napa Cab

Cardinale 2010: Cassis, mint, cedar, cola and blackberries. In the mouth, it's entirely elegant, seamless throughout. Plump fruit nicely balanced by fine tannins and lingering finish.

Great BIG cab, but still has nice subtlties. Prefect steak wine. Love the dark fruits and spices. Deep cherry and blackberry with a hint of coffee. Delicious, quintessential napa cab.
