Description: The spectacular 1997 Cardinale (91% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Merlot, of which 79% of the grapes came from Napa and 21% from Sonoma) was aged 22 months in 100% new French oak before being bottled unfiltered. This wine's vineyard sources include Rutherford, To-Kalon, Mt. Veeder, and Keyes Vineyard on Howell Mountain. The wine's opaque purple color is accompanied by a glorious nose of licorice, cassis, lead pencil, and minerals. Sweet, with a terrific attack displaying stupendous ripeness, full-bodied richness, and a natural texture with a super-concentrated mid-palate and finish, this is a star of the vintage. It is capable of evolving for 20-25 years. Precisely 3,903 cases were produced.
