2021 Pine Ridge Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
93 points, Wine Enthusiast
Cabernet Sauvignon is synonymous with Napa Valley and has always been at the core of our winemaking program at Pine Ridge Vineyards. Our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a combination of estate fruit from Stags Leap, Howell Mountain, Oakville, Rutherford and Carneros, and grapes from select Napa Valley growers with a focus on sourcing around our home in Stags Leap.
While admiring the cranberry red hue, forward fruit aromatics of black cherry and cassis begin to make your mouth water before the first sip! On the palate, juicy notes of blueberry compote and cherry cordial meld seamlessly with hints of cinnamon and cream soda. The wine methodically transitions from the bright, round entry through the viscous midpalate and onto a broad-shouldered finish. This is where hints of clove, graham cracker and toasted marshmallow are juxtaposed with those of dark roast coffee and Bing cherry.
