Winemaker's Notes

This distinctive Bordeaux style blend is complemented by the "Rutherford Dust" characteristics of this historic Napa Valley appellation. The style is created to broaden and fine tune the palate as well as extend the finish. Pine Ridge Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon, produced since the inception of Pine Ridge in 1978, reflects the attention to detail afforded their entire portfolio of fine wines. The 2005 vintage is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from Pine Ridge's estate vineyards.

A nose of briar, blackberry and blueberry is marked by mixed aromas of coffee, tobacco and vanilla. Elegant in structure and balance, this medium to full-bodied Cabernet is teeming with cherry, blackberry and tobacco flavors, with firm, cloaking tannins giving way to an extended finish of berries and toast. This wine may be enjoyed now or cellared for ten years.
