Pride Mountain Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

“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.”

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.

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

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.

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. Best from 2005 through 2012... Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2001 Pride Mountain Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 1500ml

Aromas of blackberry and blackcurrant liqueur, black plum and chocolate. Juicy, penetrating and brooding, yet at the same time sweet and seamless. High-pitched, highly concentrated flavors of black fruits and minerals. A powerfully tannic wine that f... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Phenomenal wine, with seductive spicy, mocha and chocolaty oak aromas and ripe, rich, plush currant and blackberry flavors that are deeply concentrated; reveals extra layers of complexity and depth and finishes with a potent burst of ripe flavors.
