Heiner Lobenberg über:
Cardinale 2013


Lobenberg: In 2013 fast reinsortiger Cabernet Sauvignon. 10% Merlot runden diese Aromen-Granate ab. Das Geheimnis dieser Cuvée sind die neun verschiedenen Weinberge und der geniale Final-Blend der sieben unterschiedlichen Regionen. Ein tief konzentrierter, süßfruchtiger, vollmundiger Napa-Wein mit großem Reifepotenzial. 98/100


Galloni über: Cardinale

-- Galloni: The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is simply stunning. A real head-turner, the 2013 possesses superb density and tons of pure power. The flavors are deep, powerful and explosive. Mocha, new leather, and licorice wrap around a core of dark, sumptuous fruit. This dense, powerful Cabernet Sauvignon will require considerable patience, but it is super-impressive. And then some. Chris Carpenter crafted the 2013 from an assortment of parcels, most of them mountain sites on Diamond Mountain, Mt. Veeder and Howell Mountain. This is a real stand out. 97/100


Parker über: Cardinale

-- Parker: A brilliant wine from winemaker Chris Carpenter and the Kendall-Jackson family, this blend of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Merlot, mostly coming from mountain vineyards owned by the Jackson family, is fabulous. The 2013 Cardinale Proprietary Red Wine is dense purple-colored, a big, sweet kiss of crème de cassis as well as licorice, blackberry and espresso are all present in this full-bodied, rather sublime and intense Cabernet Sauvignon that should drink well for 25 or more years. This was aged in about 91% new French oak for 18-20 months prior to bottling. It is certainly one of the finest Cardinales I have tasted in my experience. 96/100

Mein Winzer


Cardinale liegt in den Händen von Winemaker Christopher Carpenter. Es ist die Flaggschiff-Cuvée der Jackson Family. Er interpretiert die eine perfekte Napa-Valley-Cuvée aus Cabernet Sauvignon und in manchen Jahren auch Merlot. Seit 1998 ist Carpenter im Team von Cardinale.
