Pine Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

Powerful and complex, this deep garnet wine offers alluring aromas of ripe black cherry, red raspberry and rich dark plum that mingle with layers of cocoa powder, cassis and black licorice. The entry is lush and silky, filling the mouth with bright flavors of strawberry preserves and red currant that lead into touches of creamy vanilla toast, dried sage leaf and maple-brown sugar on the impeccably structured finish, supported by smooth, velvety tannins.

This is entirely Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from among Pine Ridges’ 47 Stags Leap acres. Red cherry and strawberry aromas are supported by hints of black fruit and savory herbs on the convivial nose. The palate is loaded with both red and black cherry flavors as well as bits of raspberry, black pepper and a touch of crème fraiche. Dried mission fig and sour black cherry are evident on the finish along with a dusting of cocoa.

Wonderful, smooth wine. We paired it with Top Sirloin Steak, Snow Peas in Garlic, & a Baked Potato. One of the better wines we have purchased.

Ripe and concentrated on the nose, the 2004 vintage offers exquisite aromas of currant, blackberry, black cherry and raspberry, laden with dark chocolate, clove and tobacco. This medium to full-bodied Cabernet boasts a soft, supple texture of ripe cherry and blackberry, with an extended finish highlighted by black cherry, tobacco and brown cinnamon. This wine may be enjoyed now or cellared for 10 years or more.

'A big yet graceful style, this is dense withred and black fruits and notes ofblackberry, spice, currant and mocha.Offers loamy earth laced tannins, endingwith an elegant, graceful presence. Drinknow through 2025.'- J LWINE SPECTATOR

The Stags Leap District s moderate temperature, influenced by the San Pablo Bay, leads to slow, even fruit development throughout the growing season. The majority of our 47 acres across four estate vineyards in this region are densely planted with Cabernet Sauvignon and other Bordeaux varietals on steeply-terraced hillsides with Bale clay-loam soils, producing very low yields of intensely flavored grapes.

Intense and concentrated yet supple with ripe currant plum and blackberry fruit that s well-centered. Finishes with a burst of ripe fruit and firm gritty tannins. Drink now through 2012. 3 013 cases made. JL Wine Spectator.

...good but uninspiring levels of ripe curranty fruit intermixed with spicy, toasty oak. The wine is medium-bodied and elegant, but astringent and potentially austere. Perhaps more bottle age will add flesh to this wine... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1995 Pine Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon Stag's Leap District 750ml
