About the Wine

2016 was a banner year for Napa Cab!

Pine Ridge Vineyards has been a leader in crafting iconic Cabernet Sauvignon wines from Stag's Leap District since 1978.

The fruit for this vintage was chosen from premier vineyard sites throughout the Napa Valley, mainly the Rutherford and Oakville appellations. The bright, ripe fruit and substantial mouthfeel that characterize this complex bottling are a direct result of the meticulous care and attention to detail paid by our vineyard workers to the vines.

Winemaker Tasting Notes: 

Fermentation and barrel aging in ideal conditions produced a deep ruby wine with inviting aromas of red and black ripe fruit, chocolate nib, vanilla, and cedar. The big, round entry expands to a mouth-filling plushness showing flavors of bright cherry and layers of texture. Tannins are seamless, well integrated, and more structured than drying. The natural sweetness of the fruit balances the bright acidity and follows through to the lingering blackberry and caramel-laced finish.

Reviews

The only 2016 presented, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley spent 16-18 months in American oak and reveals a saturated purple color as well as a ripe, sexy style in its blackberry, plums, vanilla bean, and spice-laced aromas and flavors. Loaded with fruit, it still stays balanced and pure, with silky tannins and a great finish. …~91JD
