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.

Soft, rich and ripe, this is one of those Cabernets that feels dramatic in the mouth. Partly it's the fruit; complex in cherries, blackberries, mocha and rum and cola. Partly it's the oak and partly it's the fabulous balance of rich, sweet tannins and acidity. Put it all together and it's irresistible. Best now-2010.

Although lighter than previous efforts, it exhibits a dark ruby color, medium body, black currant and damp earth characteristics, and a lean finish.

Good deep red-ruby color. Currant, tobacco, cocoa powder and sweet oak in the nose. Then surprisingly tightly wound in the mouth, with firm acids giving shape and grip to the fresh berry and milk chocolate flavors. In a leaner style for a Pride wine but shows an exhilarating sugar/acid balance. Finishes firmly tannic, bright and gripping. As serious as this seems today, there's nothing hard about it.

Aromas of herb, sage and cedar transfer to the palate, turning firm and tannic, with a strong woody component. Should come around, with hints of dried currant and berry, but this is not up to Pride's usual suppleness. Decant. Best from 2008 through 2013.

Good ruby-red. Aromatically inviting nose offers dark cherry, mocha, tobacco, coffee, licorice and flowers. Supple and rather suave, with a restrained sweetness to the somewhat cool flavors of medicinal cherry and anise. Finishes with substantial tannins that call for a couple years of patience.

The dark ruby/purple-hued 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon, a blend of 83% Napa and 17% Sonoma fruit, displays a slight austerity along with dried, tougher tannin that the Merlot or Cabernet Franc. Medium-bodied and well-made, but Bordeaux-like in its backwardness and inaccessibility, this is one of the few Pride Mountain efforts that requires 2-3 years of aging. It should last for 10-12 years.

A big, juicy young Cab that impresses for sheer flashiness, yet needs some time for its edges to soften. The ripe blackberry and cassis fruit is deep and generous, with nuances of smoky oak and sweet herbs. But the tannins are very strong and astringent. Needs cellar time. Best after 2009.

Winemaker's Notes:

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.
