Chris Carpenter's cabernets are simply delicious. We tasted every year from 2006 and I would enjoy them all at anytime. The information we received was worth the tasting alone. We now have a six bottle vertical beginning 2006.

If you don't mind spending a little more for a totally awesome tasting experience, this may be one to try. The wines are as near to 100 out of 100 as they get. Bring your wine palate and your wallet.

Not only is this winery beautiful but the hosts are very knowledgable. But the wines...you go for the wines. I couldn't ask for a better wine in Napa. Both the Lokoyas and the Cardinales were fantastic!

The Cardinale Tasting Room in Oakville introduced us to several of the premium Kendall Jackson wines. The tour of the wine making area was also very informative as we learned about the grapes, sorting and aging methods.

We paid for a private seating for 8 people which was $85 per person. However, it was awesome. We had 6+ wines with extra pours and all the food tasting accoutrements. Given their wine can be $150 to $250 per bottle, it... More
