Description

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.

The fruit for this vintage was chosen from Pine Ridge's premier estate vineyard sites throughout the Napa Valley, mainly the Stags Leap District, Oakville and Rutherford AVAs. Closely spaced vines and attentive farming of the vineyard blocks that produced the
crop contributed to the bright, complex layers of flavour that characterise this wine.

The grapes were hand picked at night, carefully sorted in the vineyard, then brought to the cellar and de-stemmed. Following a cold soak, a high-temperature fermentation occurred to ensure maximum flavour and colour extraction from the grapes. The wine was then racked to 30% new American oak barrels and aged for
18 months prior to bottling. The remaining 70% of the wine was aged in neutral French Oak to maintain the freshness and elegance of the vintage.

With inviting aromas of ripe blueberry, spiced plum, cinnamon, and vanilla, this deep ruby wine captures the senses. The palate opens with blueberry and ripe plum fruits that intermingle with hints of cinnamon.
The complex array of flavours lasts through the
lingering finish, framed by velvety tannins, hints of coconut and roasted espresso bean.
