    (from vines just yards across the county line) Good medium ruby-red. Sappy aromas of black- and redcurrant, licorice, brown spices and shoe polish. Denser than the cabernet franc bottling, with a higher pitch despite its creamy-sweet berry flavors. Exotic oak adds another layer of flavor to this already enticing but still young cabernet. Foley loves the traditional Radoux barrels, mostly from center-of-France oak and about 20% from Vosges wood.

    The dense purple-colored, angular-styled 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits aromas and flavors of licorice, toasty oak, and black currants. It possesses an austere, firm, sinewy personality as well as a tannic finish. Aging will bring out more flesh, so patience will be required in this excellent Cabernet.

    Well-oaked, with creamy, mocha-scented flavors leading to a ripe, supple, complex core of currant, black cherry, anise, spice and mineral. Turns sleek and elegant on the finish, with a long, lively aftertaste.

    Don't let the initial waft of barnyard-funk-of-the-good kind put you off when you take an initial sniff of this wine - you probably wouldn't smell great either if you were bottled up for 12 years. As the wine is exposed to more air, the nose begins to turn sweet and floral. In the mouth, earth, flowers, fruit and spice. Tannins still alive and kicking. Although you're taken in so many different directions, it's what makes this wine interesting.

    Garnet with brickish edge, opaque. Open nose, hint of sour cherry (marinated in bourbon), coffee, black olive and mineral notes. Firm acid and fleshed out tannins. Elegant but with a short finish. Drink now.

    Purple red colored wine with scratchy plum and chalk aromas ? mountain fruit. Some juicy fruit in the mouth with slightly elevated acidity and moderate to heavy tannins. Chocolate comes out in the wine?s finish.

    Ripe fruit, cherry, balanced by some brisk acidity. Nice finish. Enjoyable now; should drink this soon, not much aging potential from here.

    Shows some anise and spice on the nose. Lovely cassis and cherries in the mouth let down by the slightly short and tannic finish. This needs to be drunk soon as it has peaked.

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.
