Nose of espresso roast, plum and black cherry. Big and chunky, fleshy and hedonistic merlot. Big and bold and heavy, but nicely complex and deep. It's got that signature Pride Mountain style power and texture. Very good!- Tasted at Marché Bacchus 5/8/10 Read More

I found this a very odd cab. More akin to a smoky southern Rhone wine. It had a very toasted quality which I think overpowered the cab qualities. Wasn't for me, but a lot of people at the tasting were really enjoying it. Marche Bacchus in Las Vegas has it for a bargain price of $29. Read More
Very silky mouthfeel, lots of black fruit and oak. Not quite as complex as I would have liked. Read More
