Pine Ridge Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Jeb DunnuckThe only 2016 presented, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley spent 16-18 months in American oak and reveals a saturated purple color as well as a ripe, sexy style in its blackberry, plums, vanilla bean, and spice-laced aromas and flavors. Loaded with fruit, it still stays balanced and pure, with silky tannins and a great finish. I don't think it's going to make old bones, but it's a beautiful, pleasure-bent beauty.
Wine SpectatorA ripe and friendly style, with açaí berry, plum and warm licorice notes mixed together, carried by polished tannins through a vanilla-coated finish. Drink now through 2021. 19,150 cases made.
VinousPine Ridge's 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is an attractive fruity wine to drink now and over the next handful of years, while the sweet red cherry and plum fruit retains its youthful vibrancy. This mid-weight, gracious Cabernet will drink well with minimal cellaring.
