Winemaker's Notes:

The 2003 vintage exhibits fragrant aromas of fresh pear, melon, pink grapefruit, white nectarine and a very slight touch of lichee. The characteristic crisp, bright balance of the wine is complemented by succulent flavors of pear, melon, grapefruit and white nectarine. The long, juicy finish shows a return of pink grapefruit notes. Enjoy now or cellar for two years.

About Pine Ridge:

In 1978 , a remarkable vineyard took shape alongside a deep pine forest that climbs the western hillside of Napa Valley’s storied Stags Leap District. Today, nestled in a small valley along the Silverado Trail, the carefully maintained and terraced slopes of Pine Ridge Vineyards blend gracefully with the natural rise and fall of the land. Year after year, the wines of Pine Ridge carry a sense of this place and its history. Continuity, balance and meticulous craftsmanship are inherent in the wines and deeply embedded in the winery's heritage. Each vintage reflects the distinct characteristics of the appellation and a focused commitment to refinement that reaches across the years, from the founding of the winery to today.
