Established in 1978, Pine Ridge Vineyards produces classically proportioned, expressive wines that embody their history and distinct place of origin. Pine Ridge founder Gary Andrus, inspired by the illustrious wines of Bordeaux, believed in the Napa Valley’s potential to produce wines of similar stature. He planted the property’s original namesake vineyard on a steeply terraced hillside flanked by a dramatic ridgeline of pine trees in the Stags Leap District.
Gary’s pioneering efforts with this first vineyard were met with tremendous success as the Bordeaux varietals he planted thrived and produced wines of great distinction. In the following years, Pine Ridge continued to acquire exceptional vineyard sites across the region. Today, the Estate’s 200 acres span over five renowned Napa Valley appellations- Stags Leap District, Rutherford, Oakville, Carneros and Howell Mountain.
On the nose, aromas of dark fruits, baking spices, and vanilla bean. On the palate, those fruits are echoed with added currant, caramel, espresso, chocolate, mint, and supple tannins. Pair with long-braised short ribs, game, or grilled meats.
Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the grapes were harvested between mid-September and mid-October. Following a cold soak, a high-temperature fermentation occurred to ensure maximum flavor and color extraction. The wine was racked to 30% new American oak barrels and aged for 18 months prior to bottling. 70% was aged in neutral French Oak to maintain the freshness and elegance of the vintage.
