    The 2006 Onyx, a blend of Malbec, Tannat, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc is green, lean, and narrowly constructed. While it will last for years, it will never be charming.

Building on the groundwork laid by the founders, Pine Ridge set out with ardor and high aims for their vineyards, winery, and wines. They care for every vine as if it were their only vine and have a grape reception and sorting process second to none. Within a year of starting, they rebalanced the vines and completely revamped their grape-handling procedures. Every vintage since has been testament to the success of our viticultural and enological pursuits.Pine Ridge focuses on Cabernet Sauvignon production from Napa's key AVAs.

California is the heartland of wine production in the US, and the state that brought prestige to American wine thanks to the pioneers who built early wineries like Staglin, Beringer, Ridge, Mayacamas and Chateau Montelena in the 1800s. Its large geographic area ensures a great diversity in growing sites, varieties grown, and quality levels. Generalizations about the state's wines have numerous exceptions; however, a few key facts generally hold true—ample sunshine, dry weather during the growing season, and moderate winters prevail. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon continue to dominate the state's production—albeit in continually smaller percentages, as growers continue to diversify. More than 100 different varieties can be found throughout the state.
