purple color. medium-bodied. dark sweet fruit, chocolate. fine tannins
[Salt, rabbit] Started with very sweet tannins. Decanted for 1.5 hrs, settled down. Well balanced, surprisely moderate tannins, blueberry, cherry, oak, cocoa. Not overwhelming as I expected. Acutally drank well, but I have to say that while I would love more, I think that i gets more attention on this site than may be warranted.
Beautiful color. This needed the hour decant time I gave it as out of the gate there was an unbalanced disjointed quality that I did not care for. 1 hour later; The nose is pretty cassis as well as petroleum-refinery (a la Latour). Maybe a bit candied as well. The palate reveals a nicely balanced lush & quiet fruit bomb. There is both red and dark fruits (currant, blackberry, blackcherries, and plum) as well as tar, licorice, coffee-bean, and the Foley toasted oak.....but resrtrained. The acid level is a bit high and there is a certain sweetness evident that does not detract. There is also some sediment. The tannins seem to be resolving nicely. A nice 30 second aftertaste finished up a very nice deftly made wine.
This is one of my favorite wineries. All of their reds are FANTASTIC. I have not tried their whites yet, but im working on it.
External Reviews for Pride Mountain Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
[Barrel tasting] One can only hope this is as delicious after itrsquo;s bottled. Dark, rich and plush, with gobs of enticing flavors, serving up a mix of chocolate-covered currant, mocha, white chocolate, wild berry and pretty toasty oak. Remarkably elegant and complex, with a long finish.
The 2002 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) has an inky ruby/purple color and a gorgeously sweet nose of creme de cassis and cherries intermixed with some vanilla and spice. The wine is opulent, full-bodied, with an unctuous texture and blockbuster finish with no hard edges. It seems to be on a faster evolutionary track than the 2001, but whoandrsquo;s complaining? This is still a 15- to 18-year wine.
A polished, seductive style, offering rich black cherry and blackberry fruit thatrsquo;s ripe and well-defined, with an overlay of smoky, toasty oak, folding together nicely on the finish. For all its richness and complexity, this is a graceful wine thatrsquo;s already fun to drink. Drink now through 2011.
The inky/ruby/purple-colored 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve exhibits aromas of crushed rocks, black currant jam, smoke, vanilla, and earth. With terrific texture, slightly elevated tannin, and a long, persistent, 35-second finish, this is a well-made, rich, concentrated, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Cellar it for 2-3 years, and consume it over the following 10-15.

The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve (95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot) is more backward, but promising. It exhibits an inky/blue/purple color as well as notes of lead pencil shavings, toasty oak, charcoal, sweet roasted herbs, and background wood. Rich, full-bodied, and moderately tannic, it will benefit from 1-3 years of bottle age, and should last for 15+.
What a wine. Take one of thoese hugely gooey, famous winemaker Napa Cabs, the kind that melt your palate like butter on toast or chocolate in a microwave, and add firece mountain tannins, and this is what you get. A humungous, dry, important Cab, one that desperately needs cellaring. Ten years should do it; 20 might do better. The spicy blackberry and cherry fruit isn't going anywhere.
So, you just had a bottle of our 2001 Cab and don’t think anything else can measure up? Think again! The 2002 is another powerhouse of a wine; profoundly extracted, opaque in the glass - the pure essence of mountain grown Cabernet Sauvignon. Nearly 100% varietal with just a splash of Petit Verdot, the aroma of ripe black cherry is a near knockout before expansive flavors of cherry and chocolate, cedar and espresso flood the palate. Voluptuous with smooth, fine tannins and an incredible finish, given the proper attention this is a bottle that could last you well into the night.
