“The film “The Magnificent Seven” is a classic cowboy western story of desperate town folk and reluctant hero(s). What brings the film alive is the unique range of different characters and personalities, portrayed by some of the best acting talent in the industry. Whether you’re watching Yul Brynner, James Coburn and Steve McQueen in the original, or Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt and Ethan Hawke in the recent version, the result is the same—a dynamic combination of masterful individual performances and classic storyline archetypes that keeps the audience engaged throughout.

Cardinale offers the same winning combination in vinous form: a brilliant ensemble of celebrated Napa Valley vineyards (Veeder Peak, W.S. Keyes, Yverdon, Van Z), where each brings its own personality and flavor contributions to create a singular storyline of their vintage. With its array of top-notch vineyard sources and nuanced layers of dark berry, espresso bean, cedar and rose petal, the 2015 Cardinale is truly Napa Valley at its best, with no room for wine desperados as it rides off into the sunset.”

“Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cardinale Cabernet Sauvignon (containing 10% Merlot) gives beautiful red, black and blue fruit notes with touches of dried herbs, spice cake and unsmoked cigars, plus a waft of cedar. Medium to full bodied, it has a firm structure with plenty of gregarious mid-palate fruit, finishing with a lingering herbal lift. This seductive blockbuster is temptingly drinkable now and it should age gracefully over 15-20 years
