VIDEO 097. JACKSON FAMILY WINES

September 4. 2014

Cardinale is in the hands of winemaker Christopher Carpenter. It is the flagship cuvée of the Jackson Family. He interprets the perfect Napa Valley cuvée from Cabernet Sauvignon and in some years also Merlot.

Carpenter has been with Cardinale since 1998. A year later he was promoted to assistant winemaker and after 3 years he was responsible for the top wines. The key to success is the the blending of different parcels. The grapes comes from nine different vineyards from seven different regions. Of course everything was hand picked. The Cabernet is squeezed in an old basket press, fermented only with spontaneous yeast. The wood for the barriques comes from France, for fining classic egg white is used, which also rounds off the tannins. But these are just technical details, the pure fascination lies in the glass. Cardinale is an immensely complex Napa representative with delicate sweet fruit and high maturation potential.

I met Christopher Carpenter on a European tour in Cologne (Germany) and had the honor to retire with him and the other top wines of Jackson Family Wines for an hour in a foreclosed room.
