Pine Ridge Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
Deep ruby in color, this wine boasts aromas of raspberry and blueberry perfumed with floral notes and touches of cinnamon and nutmeg. On the palate, cherry and raspberry fruit comes forward with layers of cassis, blueberry, vanilla cream, spice, and a sweet note. The texture is smooth and silky with well-integrated tannins and good acidic weight. The wine finishes long and polished.
Blend: Expressive and elegant, this exceptionally food-friendly wine will pair delightfully with a variety of dishes, from grilled T-bone steaks with chimichurri sauce, to miso-marinated sea bass or grilled salmon. For a perfect cheese pairing, Fiscalini Bandage Wrapped Cheddar, patterned after traditional English Cheddar, has the fullness, complexity, and ambition to match this wine.
Blend: 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot, 3% Cabernet Franc

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep garnet-purple color and resinous nose of herbs and earthy notions over baked blackberries and prunes. It's full-bodied, raisiny and chewy in the mouth with a slightly hot finish.
