2017 Pine Ridge Vineyards Cave 7 Cabernet Sauvignon
Deep within the hillside on the Pine Ridge estate lies nearly a mile of caves where we store our treasured wines. Tucked away farthest into the mountainside is Cave 7, the most secluded wing of the system. We present to you a Cabernet Sauvignon that expresses the depth, richness, and complexity worthy of its namesake.
Our Cave 7 captures the deep flavor intensity of a classic Cabernet. The aromas reveal red fruit cherry, briary notes and minerality. The juicy flavors mimic the aromas: strawberry, cherry combined with cola, vanilla and a touch of tart cranberries. Oak aging adds cinnamon and nutmeg notes and the acidic backbone and grippy tannins indicate a wine worth aging. It is drinking beautifully now but can be cellared a bit longer. Try it with Cabernet-braised stew or a rib roast.
