Cardinale Red Bordeaux Blend Napa Valley 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

In the late 1980's an elite group of musicians called The Traveling Wilburys was formed. It consisted of musicians like Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, George Harrison and Roy Orbison. Each were legends in their own right, yet together they formed a band that layered the musicians' individual sounds and created a harmony that spoke to the times. Cardinale mirrors that unique fusion in a wine as the 2006 captures and harmonizes the expressive tones of each vineyard source. The expansive aromatic comes through first with Mt. Veeder's dark fruit and minerality followed by Howell Mountain freshly brewed French roast and a hint of Stag's Leap cassis. The palate conveys the floral tones of Spring Mountain, the lushness of Oakville's To Kalon and the backbone of Mt. Veeder.

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.
