2012 Pine Ridge Vineyards Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon
92 points, Wine Advocate
Since the 1930’s the Rutherford region has been recognized as a source of superlative Cabernet Sauvignon in the Napa Valley. With estate vineyards totaling 61 acres within this single appellation, we make the most of the area’s well-drained gravel and loam soils, producing wines of outstanding balance and elegance.
Both elegant and exuberant, this Cabernet would make a fine partner to a traditional, hearty bistro dish, such as steak frites or coq au vin over buttery noodles. For a cheese course that is sure to impress, try serving this wine alongside Grana Padano, a hard, aged cheese from Italy.
