The 1995 vintage has proven to be a classic for the lovers of fullness in red wines. The 1995 exhibits profound depth of character with we felt was deserving of minimal handling. The wine was neither fined nor filtered to preserve the ample tannins whose roundness fill the pallet. Aromas of black cherry, cassis and currants are spiced with a sweetness of French oak from nineteen months of barrel aging. Cabernet Franc was blended in for additional spiciness. We suggest pairing it with beef dishes, game or strongly spices pasta.

With vineyards growing at an altitude in excess of 2100 feet, Pride specializes in huge, deep, mountain-grown Cabernet. Their 1996 Cabernet is quite vibrant, showing highly concentrated blackberry and deep black plum fruit, with added nuances of currant, cedar and a hint of pepper spice. The wine shows good depth. Although it has a bit more open fruit than most mountain-grown Cabernet, it is still firm and tannic enough to improve steadily in the cellar for nearly a decade. Excellent food pairings include mixed grill, venison, ripe heavy cheese and of course my favorite, a big, fat juicy steak.

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.

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.

Made of equal parts Sonoma and Napa fruit, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon displays a full-bodied richness along with deep, concentrated flavors (chocolate, creme de cassis, espresso and spicy toast). This dense, impressively endowed effort should drink beautifully for a decade.

Saturated ruby. Subtle, perfumed, slightly high-toned aromas of cassis and red currant; ripe and highly aromatic. Big, lush and dense, with superripe flavors of plum and graphite. Plenty of underlying structure. The tannins here are riper than those of the Franc, and the finish is long and smooth.

When first poured, this Cabernet seems a bit stiff and awkward, but it soon blossoms into a lovely, harmonious wine, with massive fruit tending toward black cherry and dark plum. It should continue to improve for up to eight years in the bottle.

Winemaker's Notes:

Sumptuous nose of dried black cherries overlays a sweet background of cassis. A caressing texture initially coats the mouth with pure flavors of black cherry that give way to dark berry, subtle cedar, smoke and graphite on a long evolving finish framed by just the right amount of acidity. This wine is all about balance with supple ripe tannins providing a beautiful foundation for the ample dark fruit and with nuanced acidity giving structure and lift without bite. An absolute pleasure to roll around the mouth.
