Pine Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon 2011
Still hot out of the gate - loads of dark fruit, heat, licorice, heat and heat. A very juicy wine with raspberry and cherry fruit, a good dollop of sweetness, medium-high acidity, some cream and vanilla, and just the slightest medicinal finish. May be better to decant or save this one for another couple of years.
Feisty aroma, with lots of barrel notes and cayenne pepper, and some heavy red fruit in the middle. Powerful brightly acidic attack (a little too much) with some significant tannins and a chocolately mouthfeel. Not very well balanced, perhaps a bit too young, but fun to drink.
Three and a half glasses
External Reviews for Pine Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon
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. Poised, balanced and classically proportioned, the expressive wines born from our estate vineyards spanning the Napa Valley reflect a distinctive Old World approach to winemaking.
A sweet and spicy nose of dark, ripe plum, blackberry pie and red licorice balanced with leather and star anise bursts from the glass in this deep garnet wine. The palate echoes the richness of the bouquet and surges with fresh cassis, black cherry and brambly black fruit flavors, supported by a framework of lush tannins, roasted espresso and dark cocoa.
The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is an attractive, radiant wine graced with expressive dark red fruit, flowers, licorice and spices.
Winemaker Notes - A dense ruby hue hints at the extraction of this young, intense wine. Rich aromas of black cherry, blueberry and blackberry syrup are followed by hints of toasted pecan, cocoa and creme de cassis. The palate is well-structured with firm tannins enveloped by flavors of dark berry and cherry fruit, cigar box, milk chocolate and cinnamon spice. Decant for 30 minutes to allow this youthful wine to open up and show at its best. This wine is a flavor bomb so pair it with the similarly concentrated flavors of wild game with classic sauces, long simmered boeuf bourguignon and roasted leg of lamb. Age will certainly tame the exuberance of this wine but will make up for it with added complexity. In five to eight years, pour it alongside simply prepared meats and aged cheeses.
Glass-staining opaque color-red and deep purple. The nose is super expressive offering blackberry and candied red fruit dried herbs and chaparral. Those notes are mirrored on the palate which is very up front in its sweet black fruit and liqueur. With its flash of primary fruit and supple tannins this could be enjoyed in the near term or held for a few years. Devon Magee.
