Deep within the hillside on the Pine Ridge estate lies nearly a mile of caves in which we store our treasured wines. Tucked away farthest into the mountainside is Cave 7, the most secluded wing of the system. We present to you a Cabernet Sauvignon that expresses depth, richness and complexity worthy of its namesake.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Deep garnet in the glass, this wine presents a savory and fragrant bouquet teeming with fresh fruit notes of black cherry and crushed blackberry, infused with hints of clove, toasted oak and enticing umami. The palate is ample and complex, opening with layers of roasted black plum, cocoa powder and sweet vanilla that give way to touches of caramel, blueberry preserves and espresso bean. The finish is luscious and lingering, framed by fine tannins and bright acidity.
Vineyard Notes
The fruit for our 2013 Cave 7 Cabernet Sauvignon was specially chosen from a collection of our favorite vineyards across our estate vineyards. The majority of this vintage’s grapes were sourced from our select blocks in Oakville, with a small amount coming from our Howell Mountain vineyard.
Production Notes
2013 was an ideal seaon in Napa Valley, with dry conditions and a long, sunny summer, allowing even ripening and yielding exquisite, balanced fruit. The fruit for this wine was harvested at an optimal level of ripeness in early October. Fermentation took place at a high temperature to ensure that maximum extraction was achieved before the wine was racked to 40% new French oak barrels. The wine was aged in barrel for a total of 18 months before bottling.
Food Pairing Notes
Smooth and elegant, this vintage of our Cave 7 Cabernet would make a delectable pairing for a simple yet hearty dish, such as grilled venison steaks with rosemary potatoes, or a lamb burger with feta, arugula and grilled onion. It would also partner wonderfully with Taleggio, a semi-soft cow’s milk cheese from Italy.
