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.

Our group of 8 reserved a private tasting, and we were all overjoyed with our guide, the winery and, of course, the wine! We really enjoyed most of the wines we tasted and bought several bottles as well. Beautiful location and view. Seriously fantastic wine. This winery will be a fond memory in the future. Our host was knowledgeable, personable... More

Be sure to reserve a tasting, as this is the only way (VERY FEW walk-ins) to enjoy this amazing winery. This was the last stop for our trip, and we saved the best for last. We were treated amazingly well by Jason, who conducted the tasting. This was one of the best experiences of all times! Their wines are simply... More

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.

The Cardinale Estate & Winery is simply incredible. The wines are amazing and the staff & facilities are very first class. We stayed in the home on the estate for the 4th of July weekend and were so impressed! Add this to your Napa travel plans!

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.

Headed up 29 and saw the sign for one of my favorite wines and just had to drive in. I figured with no appointment I could at least get a picture. But Anne squeezed us in (this is the off season) and we tasted many wines. Then Anne got us booked into great wineries for the next few days which... More
