Upon first inspection, this garnet hued beauty reveals aromatics of red raspberry and cherry cola, but after diving back into the glass one will start to notice beautiful wafts of molasses ginger cookies and gingerbread, reminiscent of trips to grandma’s house as a kid. Notes of cherry jam and a vibrant acidity make your mouth water as notes of caramel, vanilla and pumpkin pie spice give a rich warmth and depth to the palate. On the finish, hints of coffee and strawberry jam lightly recede into the distance.

A juicy turkey burger topped with Gorgonzola Dolce would be a fitting accompaniment to this wine.

Vintage Notes

Here in the valley, it was a warm, dry winter and we didn’t start to see rain and cold weather until the end of March. The mild spring season gave us a great early start, while the summer brought very cool mornings and very warm days. All of these factors provided us with a nice, early season harvest date range that lasted from September 9th through 14th, 2020.

Winemaker Notes

Since our founding in 1978, Pine Ridge Vineyards has invested in 160 acres of estate vineyards, 47 of which are in our home appellation, Stags Leap District. The fruit for this vintage was chosen from our premier sites set throughout the Napa Valley including our estates in Stags Leap, Oakville and Rutherford.

The 2020 vintage was harvested from September 9th to September 14th. The grapes were hand-picked at night, carefully sorted in the vineyard, then brought to the cellar and de-stemmed. This meticulous care taken in the vineyard by our Vineyard Manager Gustavo Avina and his crew delivered bright, ripe fruit, with substantial mouthfeel and complexity. Following a cold soak, a high-temperature fermentation occurred to ensure maximum flavor and color extraction. The wine was racked to 10% new French oak and 20% 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.

Handfuls of smushed, ripe blueberries and freshly sharpened graphite bound out of the glass. Mouth-watering acidity, balanced by finely integrated tannins, is enveloped by flavors of cinnamon spiced plum with vanilla accents. On the finish, aromatics of French press coffee, mixed berries and coconut slowly recede into the distance. Enjoy now through 2029

Vintage Notes

2019 began with a wet and cool spring, which pushed bud break out two weeks later than in 2018. The summer growing season was relatively uneventful, with no heat spikes. Due to the moderate weather and late bud break, veraison did not end until early August in some areas of the valley. Autumn brought hot days and cool nights which helped push the grapes to full ripening, while preserving their acidity. As a result, the wines produced from this vintage are full and robust with deep color.

2018 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Add To Cart
$150
/ 1.5L

Our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon leads with pencil shavings and cola aromas. On the palate, cherry, sweet vanilla cream and strawberry share the bill, alongside dusty tannins and a lasting finish that reminds of toasted nuts. This wine is enticing now and will drink well for at least 5 years.

Vintage Notes

The 2018 growing season started with a cool spring with significantly higher than average frost hours (a measurement of hours below 36 F), which led to a late bud break. The growing season was also unique in terms of GDD (growing degree days), with 14% fewer on average than 2017. The cooler mild conditions and lack of extreme heat spikes combined to create an extended growing season and measured pace to harvest which resulted a high-quality, elegant crop with brighter acids and notes of cranberry, pomegranate and tart cherry.
