Happy Harry's Direct Offer #3Pine Ridge Fortis Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
Pine Ridge Fortis Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
This stunning, deep ruby wine presents a harmonious bouquet that overflows with sweet plum, blueberry jam and dark black cherry, intertwined with touches of mocha, allspice, sweet vanilla and sandalwood. The palate is exquisitely plush, filling the mouth with flavors of ripe raspberry, blackberry pie and juicy plum, supported by a framework of smooth tannins and touches of toasted oak, dark baking cocoa and spun caramel that remain through the long, elegant finish.
With its captivating complexity and stellar balance, this Cabernet is the star of any meal it ac- companies. A substantial yet simple dish such as a dry-aged New York strip steak with parmesan potato gratin and sautéed long beans would pair fabulously with this wine.

“The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Fortis, which is a blend of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Malbec and 3% Merlot. An absolutely spectacular offering from Pine Ridge and one of their all-time great Cabernet Sauvignons, this prodigious blend has an inky purple color to the rim and a gorgeous nose of charcoal, asphalt, graphite, blueberry, blackberry and cassis, while not a trace of oak seems to make it through. The wine is large-scaled, massively extracted, but not without balance. It offers layers and layers of fruit, superb richness, and a long, moderately tannic finish. This is a wine for patient connoisseurs that needs to be put away for a good 4-5 years, but it could have 30-35 years of upside potential in a cold cellar.”
