Winemaker Notes

The 2014 FORTIS combines notable elegance with rich fruit intensity. Ripe mountain blackberry, cassis, dark plum, dark chocolate, sweet oak, coffee, and vanilla aromas lead to an expansive palate of dark cassis, espresso bean, plum, and black cherry. Pine Ridge barrel ages the wine in the winery’s caves to mature flavors and integrate plush, layered textures. This is a seamless wine with great finesse that will continue to age gracefully.

To fully appreciate the complexity of this wine, serve it with simple foods such as a juicy sirloin steak with garlic butter, or braised short ribs with herbed polenta. The ultimate pairing is a glass of 2014 FORTIS with a cheese course. It needs a hard cheese of heightened flavor and depth, such as an aged Pecorino Toscano. Robust and meaty, with hints of melted butter and lemon, a well-made Tuscan pecorino is the cheese equivalent of a grilled lamb chop. What better wine with such a savory cheese than this sumptuous tête de cuvée?

Blend: 98% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Petit Verdot

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The deep garnet-purple 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Fortis is scented of menthol with sautéed herbs and iodine over a core of baked blackcurrants and black plums plus scorched earth, tar, pepper and cedar suggestions. Medium to full-bodied, it's chewy and firm in the mouth with a good core of fruit but is still youthful and needs time.

Wine Enthusiast
Plummy cinnamon notes meet fruity coconut depth in this ripe, soft and brightly constructed wine that's rich and full-bodied.

Pine Ridge Pine Ridge Vineyard Celebrates 40 Years Winery Video

Pine Ridge Vineyards has been a leader in crafting iconic Cabernet Sauvignon wines from Stags Leap District since 1978. Our winery lies tucked beneath a ridge of pines, with a full view of the rugged outcropping of palisades that speak to the dramatic geologic origins of our home and its world-famous soils. Today, our estate vineyards span four additional appellations within Napa Valley — Howell Mountain, Oakville, Rutherford, and Carneros —and they are dedicated to producing powerful expressions of each distinct terroir.

Their winery and all of their estate vineyards are Napa Green Certified, with a fully customized conservation program for each site to encourage and protect biodiversity.

Cabernet Sauvignon

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.
