Review: 2007 ForeFront by Pine Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon

Pine Ridge is a Napa winery I recommend highly, and were their wines not so expensive I’d probably drink a lot more of them.

ForeFront is the company’s new second label, sourcing grapes from all over but producing some very drinkable wines for its trouble.

The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon is a Bordeaux-style blend of 78% cabernet, 5% merlot, 2% petit verdot, 1% cabernet franc, and 1% malbec — all from Napa — plus 13% syrah from El Dorado and San Luis Obispo. Quite a curious conflagration, it actually comes together in a simple and fruity wine, plum-like at its core, with minimal tannins and some herbal, lavender notes in the finish. A great easy-drinking, everyday wine at a perfect price.
