Winemaker Notes

The nose is met with lush aromas of creamy baked cherry, crushed cranberry, vanilla, boysenberry, cola, milk chocolate and cinnamon bark. This medium bodied wine has pronounced flavors of berries, cherries, spice, currant and toast. A supple entry highlights velvety tannins and the long finish is accented by sweet cream, milk chocolate-covered cherries, vanilla, hints of cedar and toasted oak.

Critical Acclaim

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast

Drinks immature and gangly now, a fresh young Cab that needs time to knit together. It's all there, though, from the ripe blackberry, cassis, cherry marmalade and cappuccino flavors and sweet, vanilla-infused new oak to the firm, sweet young tannins. Very fine, high-class wine. Should blossom by 2009, then evolve for many years.

W&S 90
Wine & Spirits

The silken texture of this wine's tannin gains elegance with air. Those tannins are potent, yet so smoothly incorporated into the fruit that together the impression is round and clean. Decant it for steak with sautéed mushrooms.

Pine Ridge, , California
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.

Sauvignon Blanc

View all wine

A crisp, refreshing variety that equally reflects both terroir and varietal character, Sauvignon Blanc is responsible for a vast array of wine styles. A couple of commonalities always exist, however—namely, zesty acidity and intense aromatics. The variety is of French provenance, and is important in Bordeaux and the Loire Valley. It also shines in New Zealand and California, while Chile and South Africa are excellent sources of high-quality, value-priced Sauvignon Blanc. High-quality Sauvignon Blanc is also produced in Washington State, Australia, and parts of northern Italy.

In the Glass

From its homeland in the Loire Valley, where citrus, flinty, and smoky flavors shine through in Sancerre and Pouilly-Fume, to Marlborough, New Zealand, where it is pungent, racy, and “green” (think grass, leaves, gooseberries, and bell peppers) and tastes of grapefruit and passionfruit, Sauvignon Blanc has something to offer every wine drinker. In Bordeaux, it is typically blended with Sémillon and Muscadelle to produce a softer, richer style. In California, any of the aforementioned styles can be emulated.

Perfect Pairings

The freshness of Sauvignon Blanc’s flavor—from bell pepper and cut grass to passionfruit, gooseberry, and ripe kiwi lend it to a range of light, summery dishes including salad, seafood, and mild Asian dishes. Sauvignon Blanc settles in comfortably at the table with notoriously difficult foods like goat cheese and asparagus. When combined with Sémillon (and perhaps some oak), it can be paired with more complex seafood and chicken dishes.

Sommelier Secret

Along with Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc is the proud parent of Cabernet Sauvignon. That green bell pepper aroma that all three varieties share is no coincidence—it comes from a high concentration of pyrazines (an herbaceous aromatic compound) inherent to each member of the family.
