Pride Mountain Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 1997

Winemaker's Notes:

The crush of 1997 came fast and furious. Early budbreak made for an earlier than usual harvest and the warm ripening season provided a good size crop at full ripeness. The ripening lots extracted color as soon as they were crushed and actually stained the stainless steel! In the barrel they immediately displayed uncommon depth and extract. The aromas of this 100% varietal Cabernet Sauvignon show very ripe berry, currant and cedar elements. Huge on the palate, the mouthfilling flavors resolve in a finish that literally lasts for minutes. Soft tannins provide the grip necessary for long and elegant bottle aging. This Cabernet is enjoyable in its youth but should improve for more than 10 years.

People immediately understand why the winery estate was previously named "Summit Ranch." The twisting twenty-minute drive west from St. Helena, or east from Santa Rosa, rewards visitors with a stunning view of rugged Mount St. Helena to the northeast and verdant vineyards rising skyward in all directions. Pride Mountain Vineyards is a 235-acre estate with a wooden-beamed, modest-sized winery that blends smoothly into its mountainous surroundings and California heritage. The charming and unpretentious tasting room offers guests the opportunity to sample the latest vintages while chatting with the gracious and knowledgeable staff. County regulations require that visitors hold a prior appointment. Read less

Vibrant aromas of blueberry, blackberry, black cherry, violet, espresso and cedary oak. Huge, lush and sweet; thick and mouthfilling, with very strong extract and firm supporting spine.
