“The latest vintage of our extraordinary blend enchants the nose with a refreshing bouquet of succulent fruit and delicate florals, opening with juicy honeydew melon, sweet white peach, and ripe green plum touched with hints of spiced white tea and soft apple blossom. The vivacious palate leads with crisp yellow grapefruit, fresh-cut pineapple and sumptuous honeyed pear notes. Lush and lively fruit flavors linger through the clean and slightly off-dry finish.”
"Established in 1978, Pine Ridge Vineyards produces classically proportioned, expressive wines that embody their history and distinct place of origin.
Pine Ridge founder Gary Andrus, inspired by the illustrious wines of Bordeaux, believed in the Napa Valley's potential to produce wines of similar stature. He planted the property's original namesake vineyard on a steeply terraced hillside flanked by a dramatic ridgeline of pine trees in the Stags Leap District."
This bold Napa Valley Cabernet delivers complex aromas of opulent dark fruit such as cassis, ripe plum, and blackberry liqeuer. The palate echoes the seductivess of the nose with earthy
elements of cedar box, minty chocolate, and mocha. Lush tannins deliver a textured, mouthcoating finish of roasted espresso and black cherry. This wine can easily add another 8 to 10 years of aging.
The 2009 vintage received 90 points from the Wine Advocate
