Winemaker's Notes:

Intense flavors of wild cassis and raspberry mixing with warm toasty aromas marry well with smoky, green Spanish olive, and "dusty characteristics" typical of the famed Rutherford appellation. Deep and dark, this remarkably complex Cabernet Sauvignon shows a long finish with great depth and length.

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.
