Pride Mountain Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Reserve 1996

Winemaker's Notes:

High on the mountaintop where Cab is King, this 100% varietal was produced from three of the most awesome Cabernet lots this vineyard has ever produced. Bountiful aromas of ripe cherry and cassis mingle with smoky oak nuances. Immense, round and sweet on the mid palate, soft tannins linger with ripe berry flavors. Finish tannins provide the essential grip for long term cellaring. As this wine ages and its tannins soften further, the finish may last for days! The ’96 Cabernet vintage on the mountain can only be called great – the most extracted lots that are assembled here are unbelievable. This wine is truly the best of the best, and will continue to improve for decades.

Pride Mountain Vineyards:

The twisting twenty-minute drive west from St. Helena, or east from Santa Rosa, rewards visitors with a stunning view of rugged Mount St. Helena to the northeast and verdant vineyards rising skyward in all directions.

People immediately understand why the winery estate was previously named "Summit Ranch." The twisting twenty-minute drive west from St. Helena, or east from Santa Rosa, rewards visitors with a stunning view of rugged Mount St. Helena to the northeast and verdant vineyards rising skyward in all directions. Pride Mountain Vineyards is a 235-acre estate with a wooden-beamed, modest-sized winery that blends smoothly into its mountainous surroundings and California heritage. The charming and unpretentious tasting room offers guests the opportunity to sample the latest vintages while chatting with the gracious and knowledgeable staff. County regulations require that visitors hold a prior appointment. Read less

Ripe, rich and full-bodied, with a complex array of spicy currant, black cherry, earthy-leathery nuances and mineral flavors. Tightly wound, it's in need of short-term cellaring... Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1996 Pride Mountain Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 750ml
