Notes from the Winemaker:

The fruity fl oral signature of Chenin Blanc and the fragrant bouquet of Viognier make up this unique bottling. Pine Ridge was the first California winery to develop this original blend. The Chenin Blanc grapes were sourced from Salman Farms, the Herzog Company, Bogle Vineyards, Roger Tillis Farms and Wilson Vineyards, in the moderate river delta region of Clarksburg. Bear Creek Winery in Lodi provided the Viognier grapes this year.


What Does It Taste Like?

Our 2009 bottling of this distinctive blend presents a fragrant bouquet of fresh fruit notes including Asian pear, pomelo and lychee, touched with a delicate floral layer of jasmine blossom and kaffir lime leaf. On the palate, enjoy a slightly off-dry harmony of fruit flavors including honeydew melon, ruby red grapefruit, juicy white peach and crisp golden apple. Bright acidity and a clean, refreshing finish round out this wonderfully radiant and delightful wine.


Ratings & Reviews

90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Consistently a killer wine value is Pine Ridge’s 45,000-case blend of 80% Chenin Blanc and 20% Viognier. The 2009 Chenin Blanc/Viognier offers up soaring floral notes intermixed with white peaches and apricots. This delectable, fresh, crisp, light-bodied, dry white should be drunk over the next year.

Barrel samples of the 2009 Napa Cabernet Sauvignon, 2009 Stags Leap Cabernet Sauvignon and 2009 Fortis Cabernet Sauvignon all showed forward fruit, deep color, charming tannins, and perhaps less weight than the 2008s or 2007s, but lots of style and elegance. They will be drinkable early on and I am sure will put on additional weight during their upbringing in barrel." - Robert Parker (12/2010)
