Cardinale is located in Oakville, in Napa Valley. It was established in 1994 when Jess Jackson of the Kendall-Jackson portfolio of wineries purchased an existing estate, built a new winery and began producing a prestige wine, Cardinale. The wine is typically at least 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, blended with Merlot. Cardinale includes 162 acres divided between Mount Veeder and Howell Mountain. Robert M. Parker has regularly awarded Cardinale scores in the mid-90s, and notes that Cardinale “is one of the flagship wines of the brilliant California visionary and vineyard owner Jess Jackson…”
