Very nice and expressive nose with cherry liqueur, flowers, and chocolate. Chocolate laced cherry, raspberry, and some sweet soil in the mouth. Coats the mouth very well, medium + bodied, can pass for silky tannins, as they show some activity but they're well resolved and it's absolutely ready to drink. Fruit dominated palate, balanced with decent acidity that pierces through the palate pretty well, and showing some earth notes. Medium finish. 91 points 61% Napa County, 39% Sonoma County - 88% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2.5% Petit Verdot, 0.5% Cabernet Franc

It's not easy to find a high quality cab franc. When I do, I hang on. This qualifies as a VERY good one (though maybe not great). Pride Mountain has a reputation for huge, earthy reds, and this one doesn't disappoint. The fruit and tannins balance nicely and the finish is the full, long one that's characteristic of so many of their efforts.

I was lucky enough to start with a barrel-tasting of this wine on a visit to the winery. It blew me away then and continues to do so now. WS wasn't too optimistic about its longevity when they rated it in 2005, but I think it is drinking as well now as it was then and it seems that it will for at least the next 3-5 years.

Good full red. Exhilarating floral aromas of blueberry, licorice and cinnamon complicated by leather and earth. Juicy, sweet and lively, with an intense flavor of allspice and terrific lift. Elegantly styled and very fresh on the lingering aftertaste... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Cabernet Franc wine from California in USA. 2005 Pride Mountain Vineyards Cabernet Franc 750ml

Medium red-ruby color. Complex nose melds raspberry, currant, leather, pepper, coffee and fresh herbs. Sweet, high-toned flavors of blueberry and black raspberry, with a peppery element that does not cross over into greenness. This boasts a sappy sug... Stephen Tanzer's IWC.

Fresh, sweet aromas of blueberry, camphor and green tea. Juicy and penetrating, with strong acidity to balance the very ripe fruit. Complicating note of tobacco. Finishes with broad, dusty tannins and excellent length. Stephen Tanzer. A Cabernet Franc wine from California in USA. 2002 Pride Mountain Vineyards Cabernet Franc 1500ml
