Pine Ridge Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
Wine AdvocateThe bottled 2014s include the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa, which is 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Petit Verdot. A classic much in keeping with the vintage characteristics, this charmer is loaded with sweet black and red currant fruit, some spice box, earth, and subtle oak. It is up-front, irresistible, full-bodied and layered with fruit and glycerin. The finish displays sweet tannin and the wine can be drunk now or cellared between 15-20 years.
Wine EnthusiastThis is a silky-smooth and integrated wine, with firm, structured tannins that provide support without distracting. A wealth of brawny baked berry, tar and chocolate flavors reveal themselves over time, while subtle, deep clove and dried herb scents lie beneath.
Wine SpectatorSolid and well done, centered on a core of loamy earth, currant, clay and cedar flavors. Tightens on the finish, where the tannins are firm and grippy. Drink now through 2024. 15,650 cases made.
