Pride Mountain Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2004
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.

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.

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.
This tight, well-structured red is firm, with dried currant, blackberry, black licorice, anise, cedar and gravel flavors leading to a full body. Ends with a cleansing, refreshing aftertaste. Best from 2012 through 2019.
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.

Pride's cabernet vines on top of Spring Mountain ripened their grapes to a potent completion in '99, yielding a reserve with superb integration of tannin, texture and fruit. The ripe damson plum fruit and sweet toast of oak comes together in the flavor of dense chocolate crust on the bottom of a baking sheet. While oak dominates the young wine when first poured, there's a gravelly rasp of tannin that brings the fruit to the fore. It's what cult wines should taste like, supple, sexy and delicious, all dressed up with the inner strength to pull it off.
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.
