In 1978 , a remarkable vineyard took shape alongside a deep pine forest that climbs the western hillside of Napa Valley's storied Stags Leap District. Today, nestled in a small valley along the Silverado Trail, the carefully maintained and terraced slopes of Pine Ridge Vineyards blend gracefully with the natural rise and fall of the land. Year after year, the wines of Pine Ridge carry a sense of this place and its history. Continuity, balance and meticulous craftsmanship are inherent in the wines and deeply embedded in the winery's heritage. Each vintage reflects the distinct characteristics of the appellation and a focused commitment to refinement that reaches across the years, from the founding of the winery to today.

The Stags Leap District's moderate temperature, influenced by the San Pablo Bay, leads to slow, even fruit development throughout the growing season. The majority of our 47 acres across four estate vineyards in this region are densely planted with Cabernet Sauvignon and other Bordeaux varietals on steeply terraced hillsides with Bale clay loam soils, producing very low yields of intensely flavored grapes

TASTING NOTES:
Wine Enthusiast: "From a steep, densely planted estate vineyard, this is a lilting regional example of well integrated oak in support of black raspberry, licorice and chalky clove. Silky tannins mark it most, providing a balance to the fruit and a pronounced, entirely delectable bite of black pepper on the finish."
Wine Spectator: "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. "
The Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Stag's Leap District is not surprisingly the most Chateau Margaux ish wine of the group of Pine Ridge Cabernets, with streamlined, restrained fruit flavors, but ripe with mulberry, black cherry and blackcurrant. It's elegant, yet substantial, in a medium bodied, pretty style of wine. Drink over the next 10 12 years."
