    Pine Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2021, crafted by the talented winemaker Josh Widaman, is a remarkable representation of the esteemed Napa Valley terroir. A blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 7% Petite Sirah, and 5% Malbec, this wine embodies the quintessence of its prime vintage and the meticulous care taken in its viticulture and winemaking process.

    Boasting a captivating cranberry red hue, the wine unravels an aromatic symphony of black cherry and cassis that sets the stage for a delightful tasting experience. The palate is graced by succulent notes of blueberry compote and cherry cordial, intertwined with subtle nuances of cinnamon and cream soda. A seamless transition through a viscous mid-palate reveals an exquisite complexity, where the bright, round entry culminates in a broad-shouldered finish. Hints of clove, graham cracker, and toasted marshmallow harmoniously interplay with rich undertones of dark roast coffee and Bing cherry.

    This wine’s elegance is further accentuated by its aging process, where it spent 18 months in a combination of 35% new French oak, 15% new American oak, and 50% neutral French oak barrels, resulting in a wine that exhibits both freshness and richness.

    Wine enthusiasts and critics alike have praised this vintage, with Wine Enthusiast awarding it 93 points, highlighting its alluring nuances of rose petal, tobacco, and cinnamon, complemented by a chocolaty palate of black cherries and raspberries. Similarly, James Suckling rated it 92 points, appreciating its balance, full body, and firm, slightly grainy tannins.

    Perfectly paired with a vegetarian chili and cornbread slathered in sweet cream butter, this wine is a testament to the excellence that defines Pine Ridge Vineyards. It promises to evolve beautifully over the next 10 to 20 years, continuing to reveal the depth and intricacy that make it a truly exceptional Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.

    75 reviews for Pine Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2021

    1. Timothy Rodriguez

      Deep purple with a smoky nose, full-bodied with a velvety texture, balanced acidity, and long, spicy finish. Excellent Napa Cabernet. Drink now with decant, evolve until 2031.

    2. William Apodaca

      Smooth and wide palate with excellent depth. Purchased from Mile High Wines. Pricey at $50+.

    3. Margaret Hobbs

      Rich and complex with bold black fruit and spicy depth. Smooth tannins and well-balanced acidity.

    4. Michael Otoole

      “Blackberry and lingonberry with a hint of black pepper. Even better than last year. Excellent.”

    5. Hilda No

      “Pine Ridge’s entry level Cabernet: Approachable with soft tannins. Great value compared to higher priced options.”

    6. Eric Schontz

      Fruit-forward with a smooth finish. Deep ruby. Enjoy now or wait for 8 years. Perfect with steak.

    7. Harold Hartley


    8. Matthew Dobson

      New favorite Napa Cab.

    9. Francesca Michaud

      Wine: 92-93 pts. on Day 1, 93 pts. on Day 3. Ready now but improves with aging. Good value.

    10. Gary Mellas

      Pine Ridge’s 2018 Napa Cab is heavily extracted and full-bodied with blackberry, cassis, licorice, chocolate, eucalyptus, and allspice. Enjoyable, but goes over-the-top for some palates. Drink at 60-62°F and benefit from aeration. Drink 2024-2033.

    11. Richard Hammel

      Simple Cab with cassis and black currant, lacking uniqueness. Great for fruit lovers.

    12. Sue Constancio


    13. Stephanie Benny

      Dark berry and vanilla flavors with a slight spice. Initial hint of grape, but lost it later. Good after breathing. Recommended.

    14. Dwight Dean

      Polished Napa Cabernet with blue and black fruit, oak, and a toasty finish. Drinking well now, can age for 5 years.

    15. Laura Murphy

      Matured and fruity with subtle oak notes.

    16. Steve Lindner

      Plush Napa Cabernet, rich and ready to drink.

    17. Natasha Gay

      Excellent wine that improved remarkably with age – hard to find more of this vintage.

    18. Bill Walters

      Black and blue fruit, with anise, dark florals, leather and wet earth notes. Oak, vanilla and sweetness is a bit too much for my taste. Good value at low $30s. 89-90 if scoring.

    19. John Stevens

      Nice, needs air.

    20. Barbara Reasor

      Ripe blackberry with a hint of green.

    21. Gary Bunnell

      No changes from previous notes.

    22. Rogelio Winkler

      Great California Cab. Drinkable now with potential.

    23. Ronald Kimble

      Great California Cab that’s a crowd pleaser. Oak touch is even-handed, fruit is great. A steal at under $50.

    24. Linda Candelario

      Sturdy wine with vanilla, coconut aromas, blackberry, and red fruit notes. Needs 3-4 years to reach its peak.

    25. Jean Latson

      The wine looks ruby colored. The legs are slow. There is no sediment in the bottle. It smells like blueberry, red currant and oak. It tastes like blueberry and black currant (cassis). The body is medium/full. The wine has round texture. The wine finishes medium. The wine has low acidity.

    26. Jeffrey Jones

      Blackberry and black cherry on the nose and palate, big body, mouth-filling fruit, long finish, and lovely aftertaste. Cellar for 2 more years to enhance the flavor.

    27. Stanley Sherrill

      Pine Ridge NV is a great value with exceptional fruit and balanced tannins. Highly recommended.

    28. Sara Marrs

      Balanced Cabernet with mild fruit notes, but needs more age to resolve tannic grip. Freshness stands out.

    29. Jesse Poissant

      Herbal and spicy with tarragon and poultry spices, very nice.

    30. Randall Noble

      Sonoma Wine Bar Holiday tasting: Great taste.

    31. Paul Kinnard

      Great value at $30.00. Fruit forward and well balanced with hints of sour cherry.

    32. Lynette Hughes

      Excellent value. Rebuy and cellar in Milwaukee.

    33. Albert Dufrene

      Disappointing density, slightly extracted.

    34. Ana Brock

      Fruit forward, but lacking grip and a lingering finish. Tried it, didn’t love it, won’t buy again.

    35. Greg Vogelgesang

      Good wine with fruity notes, benefits from breathing. Cheers.

    36. Joyce Pearson

      Oaky with notes of cedar, vanilla, and yogurt. Pencil, charcoal, mint, and pine aromas. Speck and smoky character after aeration. Sweet and fruity palate with vanilla and oak, but bitter and sour finish. Needs 10 more years unless paired with T-bone on fire BBQ.

    37. Sidney Sutton

      Fresh and alive with roasted fruit notes. Lengthy on the palate with some acidity. Not getting better.

    38. Dean Williams

      Pine Ridge style: oaky, round, ripe, sweet and broad. Dark violet color, medium finish. Too heavy, won’t buy again.

    39. John Baltes

      Wine is still good despite CT’s drink by 2019 recommendation. Thin at first, but flavors grow deep and rich after 10 minutes. Oaky on the nose, tannins mellowed and soft. Good red and black fruit flavors and can last a few more years.

    40. Tina Gabaldon

      Great wine!

    41. Louis Kelly

      Fruity wine, needs more time. Low tannins. Drink next year – 2025.

    42. Elizabeth Hopkins

      Nice wine overall, but the high alcohol content is too overpowering. Good combination of dark fruit and oak with a punchy menthol taste. Tannins are not the most elegant right now. It’s worth trying but not sure if I’d buy it again.

    43. Alvin Kirk

      Full-bodied and smooth with balanced black fruit flavors of black currants and plum. Polished tannins and medium-length finish make it perfect to pair with rib-eye steaks. Two-hour decant from magnum enhances the taste.

    44. Paul Palmer

      Delightful blend of ripe black cherries, conifer, licorice, graphite, and smoke. Clever tannic structure with lovely tension between chocolate and dark fruit sweetness. Delicious now, no hurry.

    45. Keith Simmons

      Review: Carnitas on Mother’s Day.

    46. Robert Barfield

      Bold, fruity and silky wine with an earthy nose. Great with Brie cheese. Garnet color with medium legs and no sediment.

    47. Jarvis Vaughan

      This Cabernet Sauvignon may not suit those looking for a subtle taste. However, it is drinking nicely at 12 years and has mellowed out. It has a fruit presence and is not over-the-hill.

    48. Jeffrey Mahoney

      Drink now or age for 2-3 years. Excellent on day two.

    49. Anthony Borrell

      Well-made Napa Cab, but too alcoholic and jammy. Drink now or in 3-5 years.

    50. Erika Quiroz

      Great Napa Cabernet with fruit and structure.

    51. Carol Irish

      “Great value Napa Cab with delightful fruit and mild oak. Highly recommended.”

    52. Mark Graven

      Reviewed Cayman wine, July 17, 2022.

    53. Eric Wooten

      Excellent! Notes of cassis, blueberries, and charred oak with delightful tannins.

    54. Roxann Gill

      92 points. Knock-out nose of creme de cassis, frutti di bosco compotes, new oak, and hot rocks after a summer squall. Ripe and generous palate with loads of cassis, berries, vanilla, and crushed stones. Full-bodied, perfectly balanced. Drink now-2028+.

    55. Charles Badilla

      Well-balanced and fruit forward with a long drinking window. Wish I had another to age for 5 years.

    56. Eliza Mills

      Excellent wine with deep color, fruity notes, and balanced tannins. A definite go-to.

    57. Eugene Hardison

      Rich and robust with notes of red and black fruit, herbs, and vanilla. Punchy finish with oak and dried herbs.

    58. Chris Duncan

      Potential score of 91-92 after aging.

    59. Philip Stephens

      Deep magenta color. Aromas of blackberry, raspberry, burnt popcorn, and watermelon Jolly Rancher. Brambly palate with vibrant acidity and firm tannins. Burnt notes are dominant, needs decanting.

    60. Belle Parke

      Classic wine that improves with time and air. 91 pts. on Day 1, 93 pts. on Day 3. Decant or hold for even better taste.

    61. Jerry Eubanks

      Sorry, there seems to be some missing information. Could you please provide me with the full existing review?

    62. David Lowry

      Blackberry and tar upfront, mild finish with hints of licorice. Still tannic, wait another year. Nice, but sad it’s my last.

    63. Douglas Crandell

      Soft, fruity, drink now or wait until 2025.

    64. James Seaberry

      Perfectly aged. Pair with prime NY strip.

    65. Christine Lockett

      “Delightful and well-balanced 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon with mixed berry and cherry compote notes. Great concentration and vibrant energy on the palate. Sincere thanks to the Roses for picking a spectacular wedding wine. Barely missed out on the top spot.”

    66. Michael Travis

      Silky wine with seamless integration perfectly complements a Rib Eye Steak.

    67. Monica Dupes

      Great wine. Blackberry color, raspberry flavor, moderated tannins. Best value around. Huge PR fans. Club members get 30% off during Holidays, $40-45 range.

    68. Esther Boots

      Great Napa wine. Excellently balanced.

    69. Daniel Williams

      Average, will attempt a different bottle.

    70. Margaret Reeves

      Undervalued Napa cab, black fruits, blackberry pie, touch of leather. Great 16 vintage. Will buy more if available.

    71. Richard Newman

      Dark black with cassis, blackberry, charred oak and vanilla notes. Full body, medium acidity/tannins, long finish. Improved since 2020. 93+/-, would buy again.

    72. Jerry Carter

      Enjoyed plummy fruits and light tannins from a Magnum at the restaurant. Drinking nicely.

    73. Agustin Boswell

      Delicious full-bodied Napa Cab with a fruit-forward taste.

    74. Benita Weinman

      Great value Napa cab, punches above its weight class. Finished last bottle.

    75. Ronald Davidson

      Balanced and structured with soft tannins, dark fruit and cherries shine. Inky color.

    WE 93
    Wine Enthusiast
    Alluring nuances of rose petal, tobacco and cinnamon lead into a ripe, chocolaty palate of black cherries, cocoa and raspberries as a soft, velvety texture achieves a very smooth mouthfeel.
    JS 92
    James Suckling
    This has aromas of dark chocolate, walnuts, black cherries, plums and spearmint. Firm and well structured, with a full body and firm, slightly grainy tannins. Excellent balance.
