Good ruby-red. Aromas of black raspberry and dark chocolate punched up by pungent minerality. Less opulent and obviously sweet than the Claret Reserve but higher-pitched and even more intense, with urgent dark berry fruit character dominating. This extremely primary wine shows a powerful rising finish and the structure for a slow and eventful evolution in bottle.

There is no question the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is the most backward and brooding of the wines I tasted from Pride. Firm tannins frame an expressive core of dark red berries, licorice, scorched earth, tobacco, smoke and incense. Today, the 2009 is far too young to offer true pleasure, but it is unquestionably striking. Hints of iron, graphite and smoke add complexity on the finish supported by huge mountain tannins. The 2009 is super distinctive and loaded with personality. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2029.

Offering a generous display of loamy earth, currant, blackberry and baking spice elements, this is nicely structured, with just the right amount of firmness in the tannins and acidity. Elegant and graceful.
