Editorial Reviews for Terlato Family Vineyards Cardinals' Peak
The nose here offers up an interesting blend of sweetness and earthiness with red currant fruit framed with notes of dried herbs, toasty oak, leather and earth. A little lighter bodied on entry than expected with a taut character driven by rather formidable, dry and yet not imposing tannins. The fruit here is fresh and elegant, with mulberry and plum edges. Acidity is well judged and the oak adds nice toasty spice and faint caramel complexity to the palate before receding a bit on the moderately long and lightly peppery finish. An understated wine and the kind of wine that won't make you stand up and take notice, but will be happily drained during the course of a meal. Refined and subtle. 91pts

Inspired by Maugaux, this wine is cabernet sauvignon primarily. It has a more austere nose than its sister wines with a drier, earthier flavor. Lots of eucalyptus at first, with a quartz mineral layer and cassis. A lot more tannins on the finish - good intensity and minerality.
Really nice. Flavors of cherries and chocolate, with a bit of cedar. Good structure, and a nice silky finish.

Rich and supple, this is a lavishly oaked Napa Valley red. It's a blend of cabernet sauvignon (76 percent, from Terlato's estate vineyard in Rutherford) with merlot. The dark fruit holds its own against equally dark coffee scents of oak, finishing cl... Wine Enthusiast. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 2005 Terlato Cardinal's Peak 750ml
