- Pine Ridge Vineyards Cabernet fruit was chosen from our estate vineyard sites throughout the Napa Valley, mainly the Stags Leap District, Oakville and Rutherford AVAs. The bright, ripe fruit and substantial mouthfeel that characterize this complex bottling are a direct result of the meticulous care and attention to detail paid by our vineyard workers to the vines.
Ruby red in color, this wine presents an effusive nose that swirls with layered aromas of fresh red raspberry, black cherry, and ripe red plum, enchanting the senses with hints of fragrant dried lavender, cardamom spice, and cassis. Sumptuous and elegant, the palate opens with red cherry and juicy blackberry that join with impressions of baking spice and berry cola. The complex array of flavors lasts through the long finish, framed by round tannins and integrated oak.
Expressive and plush, this remarkably food-friendly wine will pair beautifully with a variety of dishes, from grilled flank steak with chimichurri, to pappardelle with braised short rib, to a lamb burger with blue cheese. For a cheese course that will amaze, try pairing this wine with Comté, a semihard cow's milk cheese from the French Alps. (from the vintner)
