Review: 2009 Pine Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Another new release from our friends at Pine Ridge, the 2009 release of the winery’s flagship Cabernet.

This expression is a very jammy, fruit-forward wine, in keeping with the house style and along the lines of 2008 release. Big blueberry notes like this are a touch out of place in a Napa Cab, but the hints of leather, licorice, and tobacco on the finish remind you at least of a sense of place. This is a more agreeable wine than last year’s model, but it is still a wine in search of its balance.
