Opinión de los críticos

The Wine Advocate:

The deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Proprietary Red Wine is blended of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Merlot. It opens with compelling chocolate box and licorice scents over a core of black and red currants, warm plums and baking spices with hints of cedar chest and pencil lead. The palate is full-bodied with layers of cassis and kirsch flavors framed by firm, grainy tannins and fabulous freshness, finishing long and spicy. 4,772 cases produced.

Jeb Dunnuck:

Just about as close to perfection as a wine can get, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon from winemaker Chris Carpenter comes mostly from mountain vineyards and is 89% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Merlot. This full-bodied, rounded, thrillingly textured beauty boasts a saturated purple color as well as a huge nose of crème de cassis, new saddle leather, barbecue smoke, and scorched earth. It has perfect integration of its fruit, tannins, acidity, and oak, carries remarkable power and intensity, yet still glides over the palate with no heaviness or sensation of weight. It’s going to be a legendary Napa Valley Cabernet and will have 3 decades or more of longevity.

Decanter:

Along with its sister brand Lokoya, Cardinale is the crown jewel of Jackson Family Estates. Longtime winemaker Chris Carpenter’s nickname is 'mountain man'—a reference to his experience making wines from all four of Napa’s top mountain districts: Diamond Mountain, Spring Mountain, Mt. Veeder and Howell Mountain. Cardinale is a delicious symphony of mountain grapes from all of them. Very nuanced, with flavours that exude spiciness, savoriness, minerality, and a noble bitterness. Extraordinarily long.

James Suckling:

This shows lots of dark fruit, sage, blueberries, ink and blackberries. Medium to full body with ultra-fine tannins and intensity and beauty. Linear and polished. Needs two to four years to soften. Better from 2022.
