Pine Ridge Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon 2011
Exhibiting an expansive bouquet of harmonious aromas, this ruby wine bursts from the glass with notes of sweet red cherry and ripe blackcurrant intertwined with touches of sweet vanilla, creamy mocha and spicy gingerbread. The wine enters elegantly and fills the palate with intense flavors of dark cherry, blackberry preserves and cassis, backed by silken tannins and hints of espresso bean, brown butter and cinnamon toast that linger on the lengthy, supple finish. Pairing: Graceful and sumptuous, our Stags Leap District Cabernet would pair gorgeously with a hearty, substantial dish like grilled leg of lamb marinated in garlic confit, or even a wild mushroom risotto. This wine would also partner beautifully with a hard, aged Gouda such as Saenkanter for a splendid cheese course.
