Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 91

($58; blended with 25% merlot) Good full red. Aromas of black cherry, redcurrant, tobacco and mocha. Supple and sweet in the mouth, with dark berry and licorice flavors and little of the herbal character shown by so much North Coast cabernet franc. Finishes with dusty but sweet tannins, noteworthy breadth and fullness, and some lingering chocolatey oak. Excellent cabernet franc.

Blue fruits, ethereal lightness, and considerable elegance characterize the 2003 Cabernet Franc. It reveals minty, floral, blue and black fruit characteristics, admirable intensity and palate saturation, and considerable lightness on the palate. Drink it over the next 7-8 years.

Wine Spectator | 91

A seductive style, with lavish vanilla- and mocha-laced oak wrapped around a rich, lively core of currant, wild berry and black cherry fruit that flows across the palate. Plenty of tannins, but it's best soon, so decant and enjoy. 1,100 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.
