Pride Mountain Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2001
“The depth of color in the 2001 Cabernet is amazing – opaque, purple and inky. Leggy as can be, intoxicatingly dark fruit aromas of currant, cassis and crushed dried herbs enchant the nose, while ripe blackberry flavors explode in the mouth. The tannins are remarkably easygoing and spread evenly across the palate, resolving in a finish that lasts even longer in memory than it does on the tongue.”
HUGE!!! Typical of Bob Foley's efforts at Pride Mountain for several years. Dark, intense berry flavor. Started drinking it in 2007, but expect it to mellow and further improve for at least the next 2-3 years.
External Reviews for Pride Mountain Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
The 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon is structured and closed, but good. There are 3,000 cases of this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Its inky/purple color is followed by scents of pure creme de cassis intertwined with licorice, smoke, and cigar tobacco. Sweet tannin forms a backdrop for a wine of admirable texture, intensity, and purity. A tremendous experience to smell and taste, it should be at its peak between 2006-2020.
Dark-colored, with rich mocha, exotic spice, blackberry, cedar, black cherry and currant aromas, it slowly builds intensity and depth and reveals a tight core of deeply concentrated flavors supported by firm, rich tannins.
