Pride Mountain Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 1998

Winemaker's Notes:

The 1998 ripening season forced vintners to evaluate the maturity of fruit from a very unfamiliar perspective for most. The cycle began with a late bud break followed by a generally cool, overcast and rainy spring. Summer weather seemed to come and go in mid-June and the remainder of the season brought continued cool conditions. Patience brought its reward as the fruit was allowed to hang late into the cool fall months. The Cabernet harvest began during the second week of November when the fruit maturity was deemed ripe on the basis of seed and pulp color. Ripeness is evident in the beautiful depth of ruby color and legs, which cling to the glass. Aromas and flavors of cassis, currant and cedar explode on the palate as the richness of body and abundant yet supple tannins provide a delicious texture. The bright natural acidity lends a vibrance to this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, which promises to bottle age beautifully for decades to come.

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

Saturated purple-ruby. Restrained but complex aromas of blackberry, cassis, violet, licorice, bitter chocolate and minerals. Juicy and very firmly built; conveys a stronger impression of acidity. Black fruits complicated by mocha and dark chocolate n... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1998 Pride Mountain Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 750ml
