2014 Pine Ridge Chenin Blanc + Viognier (Napa Valley)
$12.99/bottle or $10.99/bottle on 6+
Winery Tasting Notes: “The newest release of our intriguing blend delights the nose with a charming bouquet of enticing aromas of fresh Meyer lemon, fuzzy peach, ripe honeydew melon and yellow plum, mingled with touches of citrus blossom and white tea. The clean, vibrant palate enters with juicy pomelo, sweet lychee and honeyed tangerine fruits, balanced by vibrant acidity and hints of yellow apple and key lime pie that last through the crisp and refreshing finish.”
Wine Advocate Notes: 90 Points “A consistent, big-time winner in the value sweepstakes, the 2014 Chenin Blanc / Viognier is a blend of 80% Chenin Blanc and 20% Viognier (145,000 cases produced) is aged totally in stainless steel, has malolactic blocked, and offers what consumers love – big, flowery, fresh honeysuckle and tropical fruit, a light to medium-bodied mouthfeel, beautiful purity, texture and a long finish. Drink it over the next year.”
2013 Pine Ridge Chardonnay (Carneros)
$25.95/bottle or $19.95/bottle on 6+
Winery Tasting Notes: “Light gold color, our 2013 Dijon Clones Chardonnay busts with alluring aromas of grapefruit, lemon thyme and honeysuckle, interlaced with subtle notes of lemon bar, buttery biscuit, brioche and cinnamon. The wine presents a juicy mouthfeel with refreshing acidity, opening with bright flavors of lemon juice, sweet lemon candy and white flowers, leading into hints of nectarine, honeyed pear and vanilla pudding that linger through the lengthy finish.”
2012 Forefront Cabernet Sauvignon (North Coast)
Winery Tasting Notes: 82% cabernet sauvignon, 11% syrah, 6% cabernet franc, 1% merlot
“The fruit for this wine was sourced from three different and distinctive appellations. The lush mouthfeel and bright characters of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah from Lake County elegantly balance the vibrance of Sonoma County Cabernet and the dark berry fruit and deep complexity of the Napa Valley Cabernet and other Bordeaux varietals.”
2012 Pine Ridge “Stag’s Leap” Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley)
Winery Tasting Notes: “Flaunting an opaque ruby hue in the glass, this wine offers a lush bouquet of ripe red cherry, red raspberry and plum aromas that dance beneath layers of cinnamon sugar, sweet sage and licorice. The entry is plush and silky, filling the mouth with flavors of cherry preserves, red currant and ripe blackberry fruits that lead into hints of vanilla toast, crème brûlée and lavender soda on the impeccably structured, lingering finish, supported by fine, velvety tannins.”
Wine Spectator Notes: 93 Points “Delivers a rich and massive, yet elegant, core of extracted dark berry, mocha, loamy earth, black licorice and dried herb. Impressively elegant, with diverse and developing flavors. Drink now through 2028. 1,133 cases made.” –JL
