Winemaker's Notes:

Seductive aromas of black currant, blackberry and dark molasses emerge on the nose, with spice and toasty oak enhancing complexity. Medium-full in body, the mid-palate is marked by fl avors of blackberry, cherry, tea and spice, with fi rm but supple tannins taking hold. The fi nish is long and dramatic, revealing tight, chewy tannins and intense tobacco, blackberry and cherry fl avors making a fi nal statement. This wine may be enjoyed now or cellared for 15 years or more.

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.
