  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93

    Black ruby to the rim. Vibrant aromas of blueberry, blackberry, black cherry, violet, espresso and cedary oak. Huge, lush and sweet; thick and mouthfilling, with very strong extract and firm supporting spine. A classic mountain-style fruit bomb, but with remarkably fine, sweet tannins. Very long and ripe on the aftertaste.

    Dark and intense, with a solid, plush core of ripe, rich currant, black cherry, blackberry and light cedar notes. Jam-packed with flavors, it's an immense wine but beautifully balanced. 3,742 cases made.

    The opaque black/purple-colored 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon (3,472 cases) offers sensational notes of black currants, minerals, smoke, licorice, and new oak. Full-bodied, with fabulous extract and power, the acidity, tannin, and potentially harsh components are well-meshed with the wine's personality. This is a large, ripe, impeccably balanced Cabernet Sauvignon that achieved 14.1% alcohol naturally. This is a spectacular wine that must be tasted to be believed.

    This bottle did a great vintage justice. The wine was very smooth at this point. Tannins were very mellow,but still a big cab. Taste lingered and had a nice finish. Moderate complexity.

    Very nice Pride cab. Cedar, cassis, black fruits, and still quite a mouth full of tannin.

Pride Mountain Vineyards sits high atop the Mayacamas Mountains straddling the Napa/Sonoma county line. Located at the site of historic Summit Ranch, where wine grapes have been grown since 1869, this beautiful setting includes wine caves dug deep into the mountains and the haunting ruins of an old stone winery dating to 1890.

Founded in 1990 by Jim and Carolyn Pride, Pride Mountain Vineyards is recognized as one of the "world's greatest wine estates" by Robert Parker, Jr., joining just 22 other California wineries for this distinction. Pride wines have appeared numerous times on The Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of the World list, and have been served at the White House more than 30 times during the last two decades.

In 2004, second-generation siblings Suzanne Pride Bryan and Steve Pride took the reins, furthering Pride Mountain Vineyards' tradition of producing highly lauded wines. In the cellar, winemaker Sally Johnson and her team work with the property's exceptional estate-grown cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc, syrah, sangiovese and chardonnay to produce world-class cuvees deserving of a place in any serious collector's cellar.
