Stags Leap District, Napa Valley

Pine Ridge Vineyards

Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Happy Thanksgiving, I hope everyone is having a relaxing evening with family and friends. Tonight we served the 2013 Pine Ridge Stags Leap Cabernet Sauvignon.

The nose reveals ripe black cherry, black raspberry, dark plum, black currant, licorice, chocolate and dark rich soil.

On the palate there is black cherry, blackberry, black plum, black currant, licorice, graphite and wet soil.

This wine is full bodied with a rich, silky smooth mouth feel with medium + acidity and medium + well developed tannins that lead to a long dark fruit earthy finish. I wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and that a very nice wine is being opened with family and friends. Have a great rest of your long weekend and be safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

For the price, case worthy. Classic cab. I didn’t get an overly fruity not super full body. Elegant for a cab. Could smell Rutherford on the nose. — 5 days ago

Estate Bottled Stags Leap District Zinfandel 2017

Much more reserved than Dave Phinney’s Zinfandels (which I love) not overpowering you with fruits. This one from Regusci gives you blue berries vanillas and hints of chocolate. If you’ve drank any of Regusci’s cabs you know instantly that this is from the same winery. — 11 days ago

Block 27 Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

I love this wine. Sorry that says not much about it. We had grilled chicken, roast potato pieces and green beans with a dozen family members and the wine just well with the food and conversation. I’ve described this wine in more detail at other times. Fully recommended. — 12 days ago

Smooth, delicate but full. Lots of juicy blackberry and some plum. We let it decant for a long time and it’s pretty perfect. — 5 days ago
