Winemaker's Notes:

A briary nose is marked with blackberry, ripe cherry, dried cherry, anise seed, tobacco and mineral as well as slight vanilla and barrel toast elements. Ripe sweet berry and cherry notes mingle with creamy mocha flavors and hints of tobacco and minerals that carry through the medium to full palate. The firm finish boasts toast, cherries, black peppercorn, cherry pie and slight tobacco nuances. Enjoy now or cellar for ten 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.
