Pine Ridge winery makes stellar Cabs from their vineyards in the Stags Leap District of Napa Valley. Branching out to the slightly more affordable realm, they’ve created Forefront. The grapes actually come primarily (84%) from Napa, and there’s a you’ll taste that immediately, but they’re sourcing additional fruit including Syrah from Edna Valley to give this wine some real zip. The blend goes like this: 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 5% Syrah, 3% Petit Verdot, 2% Malbec and 1% Cabernet Franc.

The wine shows lush flavors of blackberry, plum, cedar and mocha, with the character and complexity you’d expect on a wine costing twice the price.
