Wine Description

Since our founding in 1978, Pine Ridge Vineyards has invested in 160 acres of estate vineyards, 47 of which are in our home appellation, Stags Leap District. The fruit for this vintage was chosen from our premier sites set throughout the Napa Valley including our estates in Stags Leap, Howell Mountain, Oakville, Rutherford and Carneros. The 2021 vintage was harvested from September 9th to October 19th.

The grapes were hand-picked at night, carefully sorted in the vineyard, then brought to the cellar and de-stemmed. This meticulous care taken in the vineyard by our Viticulture Director Gustavo Aviña and his crew delivered bright, ripe fruit, with substantial mouthfeel and complexity. Following a cold soak, a high-temperature fermentation occurred to ensure maximum flavor and color extraction. The wine was racked to 35% new French oak and 15% new American oak barrels and aged for 18 months prior to bottling. 50% was aged in neutral French Oak to maintain the freshness and elegance of the vintage.

A juicy turkey burger topped with Gorgonzola Dolce would be a fitting accompaniment to this wine.

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.

Cabernet Sauvignon is a red grape varietal that is widely regarded as one of the world's most popular and highly valued wine grapes. This grape is grown in many regions around the world, including France, the United States, Australia, Chile, and Argentina. The wine made from this grape is known for its intense flavor, high tannin content, and longevity. Cabernet Sauvignon is a hybrid grape, the result of a cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, which are both native to the Bordeaux region of France. The grape is known for its thick skin, which helps it to withstand harsh weather conditions, and its small berries, which contribute to its concentrated flavor. Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are typically harvested in the late fall, when the grapes have reached their optimal... Read More
