Tasting Notes

Just 859 cases of this ultra-reserve wine were produced in 2004, only the second vintage of this estate vineyard showcase wine. Carefully selected grapes from top blocks and sub-blocks within Pine Ridge's 225 acres of Napa Valley vineyards, stretching across appellations, went into this blend (70% Rutherford, 9% Oakville, 9% Carneros, 3% Stags Leap District). Winemaker Stacy Clark combine 74% cabernet sauvignon, 10% merlot, 9% malbec and 7% petit verdot and aged the assemblage in 75% new French barrels for a tête de cuvée that would be a boon to any collector's cellar. Earl grey tea, bittersweet cocoa and pipe tobacco aromas wrap around bright red cherry and blueberry fruit notes, which appear again on the palate framed by firm tannins. The wine shows great length and full-palate complexity that should continue to develop with some time in the bottle.
