Wine Advocate | Rating: 97The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Fortis is meant to be the choicest selection from all of this estate's vineyard holdings. Its opaque purple color is followed by a classic bouquet of blackberries, cassis, camphor and graphite. Super-rich, supple and full-bodied with cassis, blackberry, oak and floral flavors, this is a tour de force in winemaking as well as one of the greatest wines I have ever tasted from Pine Ridge. It should offer delicious drinking over the next 20-25 years.Drink Dates: 2013-2038Author: Robert Parker
Wine Spectator | Rating: 93Broad-shouldered, dense and tannic, with a wealth of rich, firm, tightly wound flavors, showing touches of anise, currant, blackberry, mineral and cedar. Sails along on the finish, with the tannins lending grip to the flavors.Drink Dates: 2014-2028Author: James Laube
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.
