Pride Mountain Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Reserve 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2012 Reserve Cabernet represents the very essence of mountain grown cabernet sauvignon, with just a kiss of exotic spice and floral notes courtesy of the petit verdot. Intense, inky and massive on the palate, the wine will stop you in your tracks today and will only improve with age. The nose is as seductive and brooding as the deep dark color in the glass, expressing black tea, black raspberry, blueberry, dark chocolate, espresso and subtle wet clay. Balancing the structure and intensity of the finish is a rich and unctuous mid-palate that coats the mouth and lingers for minutes.

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
