2013 Pine Ridge Stags Leap Dist - Cab Sauv
Powerful and complex, this deep garnet wine o ers alluring aromas of ripe black cherry, red raspberry and rich dark plum that mingle with layers of cocoa powder, cassis and black licorice. The entry is lush and silky, lling the mouth with bright avors of strawberry preserves and red currant that lead into touches of creamy vanilla toast, dried sage leaf and maple-brown sugar on the impeccably structured nish, supported by smooth, velvety tannins. A classic, meaty dish, such as a roasted lamb loin with grilled vegetables and Romesco sauce, makes a ne partner for this multilayered, powerful bottling. This beautiful wine is equally enjoyable after dinner alongside dark chocolate tru es or a dry, aged cheese such as the Montgomery Cheddar, an English raw cow's millk cheese.
