Pine Ridge Stags Leap Cabernet Sauvignon
This 80-hectare estate was founded in 1978 when Gary Andrus planted the property's original vineyard in Stags Leap on a terraced hillside flanked by a ridge of pine trees. They now have vineyards across five sub-zones in Napa: four in the Stags Leap District, three in Rutherford, three in Carneros and one each in Howell Mountain and Oakville. This diversity gives winemaker Michael Beaulac many different blending options from which to choose each year, the results of which can be seen in the stunningly high quality of the wines they produce.

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District strides confidently out of the glass with notes of crushed blackcurrants, warm blackberries and mulberries with touches of cigar box, fragrant earth and potpourri. The palate is medium to full-bodied, firm and grainy with oodles of freshness lifting the intense flavors to a long finish.
