Pride Mountain Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Vintner's Select 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Clone 337 Cabernet Sauvignon is a perfect fit for the western-most vineyard blocks on our property. Grapes from our Carolyn’s and Rim Rock blocks were harvested on October 24th and November 3rd, after two weeks of Indian Summer helped them to achieve perfectly ripe flavors and nutty, integrated tannins. The wines were fermented separately in stainless steel vats and were aged separately in French oak barrels for thirteen months. The final cuvee was then assembled and allowed to marry in barrel for an additional five months. The wine displays a stunning pure Cabernet character, expressing red cherry, ripe plum, blueberry, rose petals and smoke. The texture on the palate is lithe yet structured, with an endlessly sumptuous mid-palate exploding onto a framework of ripe tannins.

Pride Mountain Vineyards:
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.

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

A bit green and disjointed right down the middle - like its appellation breakdown: 58% Napa Valley, 42% Sonoma. Possibly a fault in the wine or bottle variability. Would like to re-taste.
