Pitch Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
The Pitch Cabernet, from winemaker and world-class mountain climber Chuck Reininger, comes from glacial soils in Columbia Valley, Washington. Cooler climates and longer growing cycles produce a full-bodied wine of structure, elegance, and depth.
Vinted and bottled by Norton Ridge Wine Company, in collaboration with T. Edward Wines. Norton Ridge's wines are produced with a clear goal: to make straightforward, food-friendly wines. This goal is attained through a process that begins in the vineyard, where high-quality grapes provide a base for the wine. The grapes chosen for these wines are from select vineyard sites in Sonoma and Napa counties. The winemaking style is one of little intervention. No new oak is used (none at all in the Chardonnay) to allow the fruit and varietal characteristics of the wines to shine through.
