Cardano, Reserve, Cabernet Sauvignon, Atlas Peak, California, 2019
Overview of the Wine
Cardano Estate Winery’s vineyard, Prichard Ridge, is a key component to producing our rich, flavorful, and tannin driven wines. Our vineyard is 4 acres of planted Cabernet Sauvignon sitting on top of Napa Valley’s famous AVA, Atlas Peak. The unique combination of volcanic soil and heavy rock forces the vine to produce a smaller, more concentrated berry giving the potential to create epic, flavorful wines. With an altitude of 1,200 feet above valley floor, the fruit is able to mature evenly by getting a perfect balance of morning sunlight and cool afternoon breeze.

The deep notes of fig, black currant and tobacco box are recognizable mid-palate as this complex wine glides to a smooth and lasting finish. Cellared appropriately this wine will last for the next 15 years.
95+ Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve displays a deep garnet-purple color and intense scents of crème de cassis, plum preserves and baked black cherries with nuances of spice cake, fragrant earth, lavender and spice cake. The rich, concentrated, full-bodied palate has a rock-solid foundation of firm, grainy tannins and a lively backbone, finishing long and perfumed. 127 cases were made."
