Terlato Vineyards Cardinals' Peak 2008

Anthony Terlato, a leader in the wine industry for over 50 years, is a particular devotee of red Bordeaux blends and has been enjoying and cellaring those wines since the early 60s. When he began producing his own wine in California, he wanted to pay tribute to some of his favorite Bordeaux wines with a special selection of varietal blends. And thus the "Peak Series of wines of Napa Valley Bordeaux blends were born to honor some grand crus of Bordeaux. Cardinals Peak is the third blend in the series, following the traditions and methods of the Margaux region, which is comprised of a blend principally of Cabernet Sauvignon, with some Merlot. This wine is full-bodied and has the most structure and deepest color of all of the Peak wines. [+]
