22 in stock
Pine Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon Traveler’s Series 2021, crafted by Winemaker Josh Widaman, is a testament to the winery’s 45-year legacy in the heart of the Stags Leap District of Napa Valley. This exquisite wine is a harmonious blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, and 1% Zinfandel, sourced from up to seven premiere vineyards across three appellations in Napa Valley, Solano, and Sonoma counties.
The 2021 vintage showcases a striking deep purple hue, a result of the dry yet optimal growing conditions that allowed for smooth and even ripening of the grapes. The nose is greeted with inviting aromas of chocolate-covered strawberries, beautifully complemented by subtle notes of blueberry and mocha, revealing the classic Pine Ridge style.
On the palate, the wine reveals layers of juicy red fruits such as pomegranate and raspberry, which become more pronounced as the wine opens up. The addition of baking spices adds depth and complexity to the wine, while the firm yet well-integrated tannins and lifted acidity contribute to a long and intriguing finish.
With its layers of fruit and firm tannins, this wine pairs exceptionally well with grilled meats, fire-roasted vegetables, and fowl cooked over an open fire. The Traveler’s Series is a true testament to Pine Ridge’s legacy, capturing the essence of Cabernet Sauvignon and the diverse terroir of northern California.
