Winemaker Notes

Andrus Reserve is a founder's wine created as the ultimate expression of the winemaking philosophy at Pine Ridge. This sought-after Cabernet comes from some of the oldest and best vineyards in Napa Valley and is justly famous as one of the premier Cabernets in the world. Nuanced, rich and complex, this is a wine that will grace any cellar.

Our 1999 Andrus Reserve is a proprietary blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Malbec selected from plantings at the Andrus family's estate vineyard in Rutherford.

VINEYARD: Planted in 1975 and 1983, the Andrus estate vineyard was one of the first narrow spaced vineyards in California. It lies on twenty-five acres at the base of the Mayacamas foothills on an alluvial fan with nutrient-packed clay soils. The vineyard is densely planted, with 1,815 to 3,000 vines per acre, to promote competition and controlled stress on the vines, thus maximizing the concentration of fruit flavors.

WINEMAKING: Harvested in October 1999, the wine underwent extended maceration for 18-21 days in the tradition of Bordeaux to promote the development of elegant texture on the palate, and was pressed to barrel for malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged in 100% new, heavily-toasted French oak barrels for 17 months. The 1999 Andrus Reserve was bottled without fining or filtration in April 2001.

TASTING NOTES: This medium-bodied, dark ruby wine is elegant and graceful with a luscious bouquet of concentrated red fruits. It is reminiscent of a fine Bordeaux in its supple texture and complexity. Layers of briar, cranberry, cassis, caramel, mocha, milk chocolate, vanilla and cinnamon are wrapped in red spice, leather, hints of tobacco, and bittersweet cocoa powder. The 1999 Andrus Reserve is well balanced, nuanced and boasts a long silky finish. Cellaring for ten years or more will enhance elegance and character.

Pine Ridge, California
Image of winery
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.

One of the most prestigious wines of the world capable of great power and grace, Napa Valley Cabernet is a leading force in the world of fine, famous, collectible red wines. Today the Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other. But it wasn’t until the 1970s that this marriage came to light; sudden international recognition rained upon Napa with the victory of the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1976 Judgement of Paris.

Cabernet Sauvignon undoubtedly dominates Napa Valley today, covering half of the land under vine, commanding the highest prices per ton and earning the most critical acclaim. Cabernet Sauvignon’s structure, acidity, capacity to thrive in multiple environs and ability to express nuances of vintage make it perfect for Napa Valley where incredible soil and geographical diversity are found and the climate is perfect for grape growing. Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that express specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil—as a perfect example, Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
