Pine Ridge Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Stags Leap District|
The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District exhibits a dense ruby/purple color along with a beautiful nose of sweet red and black fruits as well as subtle background oak and underbrush. Medium to full-bodied, stylish, and graceful with a delicate integration of wood, tannin, and alcohol, this finesse-styled red possesses both substance and length. Drink it over the next 12-15 years.
This is the most delicious of Pine Ridge's current quartet of Cabs. It shows ripe black currant, cassis and cedar flavors that are immediately accessible, but have an underlying power due to the quality of the tannins. Should age, but not for long. Best now through 2010.
Smoky vegetal, herbal aromas offer little in the way of ripe fruit. Drink now through 2011. 3,500 cases made.
