RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

Just had this one tonight. Get wine with a steak. Smoke and oaky flavors with just a little earthy pinch at the tail.
Not quite the depth and complexity of flavor I've come to expect from Pride's wines. None the less, It still beats a lot of other "big name" cabs in its strength and finish. A little less fruit comes through than usual.

Bright ruby-red. Expressive nose offers black cherry, black raspberry, coffee, smoked meat and minerals. Essentially silky in texture but juicy and youthfully tight, with terrific purity of dark fruit and mineral flavor. This impressively intense win... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2004 Pride Mountain Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 750ml
Dark, ripe and high in extract, this wine is overflowing with young currant, anise, plum and spicy Cabernet flavors from the first sip to the last. Turns complex on the finish, where it picks up a dusty, cedary, chocolaty accent. Will be best after 1999, peaking in 2004. 2,252 cases made.
Saturated, bright medium ruby. Crushed cassis, licorice and minerals on the nose. Pure, primary black fruit and mineral flavors framed and enlivened by surprisingly juicy acidity. Very firmly built, vibrant wine with the structure to reward aging. Wi... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2004 Pride Mountain Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
Good full, bright ruby. Precise aromas of blackberry, minerals, menthol, cedar and slate. Supple and suave, with a slightly high-toned quality to the dark berry and bitter chocolate flavors. A real crushed-berry bomb, with good acid cut and supple broad tannins. Steve Pride noted that this wine was more aggressive in the mid-'90s; the winery introduced a gentler destemmer with vintage 2008 and is now pressing the fruit more gently. There's now less in the way of oak tannins in the finished wines, he added.
There's a consistent cherry richness running through this wine, a completeness that grows more generous with air. It's simple and satisfying, an iconic Napa Valley cabernet. Age may bring out the mountain grown complexities in the tannin, though this is delicious to drink now with any red meat.
Opaque dark ruby, black in the middle. Perfumed but reticent aromas of cassis and minerals. Very dense and very sweet in the mouth, with superb depth of black cherry and cassis flavor and an impression of solidity due in part to powerful structure. Very long on the finish, with substantial tannins covered by fruit.
The '99 vintage produced youthfully brisk wines at Pride's vineyard on the top of Spring Mountain. This Cabernet is all red fruits - cranberry, cherry and red plum. Yet all that fruit needs cellar time to absorb the hard edges of structure, all the alcohol, the four-square tannin, the edgy acidity. The purple-black concentration of the color suggests that evolution could be long and well worth the wait.
Blackberry, black cherry and cassis, all thoroughly ripe, introduce a broad array of chewy youthful tannins. A beautiful acidity balances the impressive fruit dynamic and youthful cherry flavors lingers long in the finish. Smooth and accessible now, this rich and handsome wine will evolve beautifully over the years if you can resist the immediate gratification.
