Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 92(+?)

(this and the reserve claret were bottled at the beginning of November of 2001) Good full ruby-red. Very complex, Bordeaux-like aromas of currant, mace, brown sugar and lead pencil. Dense and sweet but laid-back and rather subtle; kaleidoscopic flavors of dried cherry, roasted coffee bean, licorice, shoe polish and tobacco leaf. Here the firm tannins are less obviously buffered by mid-palate material. Finishes with a perfumed note of dried herbs. A bit less sophisticated than the reserve claret, notes Foley.

The 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve (900 cases) is closed, revealing remarkably concentrated creme de cassis fruit intermixed with licorice, mineral, and toasty oak aromas and flavors, along with high tannin in the finish. It tastes like an over-sized Bordeaux given its tannin profile, but the huge wealth of fruit, glycerin, and extract are exceptional. Patience will be essential.

Truly exotic spicy wood aromatics make this an irrestable olfactory temptation. Dark, rich and layered with flavor, offering beefy currant, cedar, anise and black cherry fruit that turns sleek and elegant. A lively, lingering aftertaste. 900 cases made.

About This Producer


Riding the crest of the Mayacamas Mountain Range at an elevation of 2,100 feet, Pride Mountain Vineyards' 200+ acre property is bisected by the Napa/Sonoma county line. The family owned winery has been making some of Spring Mountain's best wines since 1990. Winemaker Bob Foley employs the laborious technique of picking, vinifying, and barrel-aging each of 80 vineyard blocks separately, resulting in the most ideal ripeness levels and blend quality. This integration of vineyard practices and winemaking art is done purposefully. The goal is wines that are bold and fruitful, and that speak of their mountain lineage. Considered by Robert Parker to belong in "the top echelon of California's quality wineries," wines from Pride's gravelly mountaintop vineyards are consistently highly rated and are a staple component of any classic Napa collector's cellar.
