Cardinale Red Bordeaux Blend Napa Valley 1996

Winemaker's Notes:

"Our Cardinale exhibits aromas of cherry, plum, blackberry and currant fruit enveloped in alluring notes of dark chocolate, tobacco and mineral. Full bodied with a voluptuous middle palate, the wine offers rich, dark and red fruit characteristics with very approachable entry tannins. Cardinale allies power and elegance, possessing layered, complex flavors, focused tannins, and a heady, lengthy finish." —Christopher Carpenter, Cardinale Winemaker

Cardinale:
Cardinale is a wine inspired by the mountain terroir of its Napa Valley estate and select vineyards along the Mayacamas and Vaca Ranges. Cardinale's densely planted, low yielding vines endure the challenging elements that produce exceptional grapes. The wine is nurtured and animated through careful mountain viticulture and innovative artisan methods.

Not as spectacular as I expected given the other reviews. Was allowed 2 hrs to decant. improved with time but not worth the $100 price tag in my opinion.
