Deep, smoky nose combines currant, graphite, tobacco and leather, plus greener notes of currant leaf and green olive. Quite backward and firmly structured, with flavors of currant, tobacco leaf, mineral, coffee and herbs. Finishes with a light dusting of tannins. The only one of these Pride 2002s that struck me as a bit green and dry in the sense of traditional Bordeaux. But this is also quite closed and minerally. I'd give it five or six years of additional cellaring.

The 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon (5,000 cases made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon) is a supple, flamboyant, and more accessible version of the 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep ruby/purple-colored, with a classic nose of tobacco leaf, black currant, licorice, and smoke, the wine is medium to full-bodied, has a supple texture, an attractive textural mouthfeel in addition to a plush, heady finish. Drink it over the next 8-10 years.

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. No denying its tannic strength, but this wine packs a wallop of fruit as well. Drink now through 2012.

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.

There are 3,000 cases of this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. It's 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.

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.

Winemaker's Notes:

Showcasing the diversity within our mountaintop Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards, this powerful, extracted wine delivers layers of fruit, cocoa and spice. Super-ripe aromas of black cherry and blueberry are accented by subtle tar and soy notes. The first sip coats the palate with black fruit, coffee and the weighty tannins that provide the firm structure of a true mountain Cab.
