Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 93

The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon flows across the palate with serious depth, power and richness. Dark raspberries, grilled herbs, tobacco, chocolate and licorice are all woven together in a rich, sumptuous wine of notable pedigree. A super-ripe, racy finish supported by firm yet well-integrated tannins rounds things in style. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2028.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 92

Pure and focused, this understated version succeeds with finesse and detail to its dark berry, red currant, mocha and spicy, loamy earth notes. Ends with chewy tannins.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

(blended with 11% merlot and 4% petit verdot): Bright, medium ruby-red. Aromatic nose combines blueberry, blackberry, tar, espresso and mint. High-toned and intense in the mouth, with the minty blueberry character and harmonious acidity giving the wine an enticing juicy quality. Finishes with firm but fine tannins and the structure to age well. I'd hold this for at least two or three years before pulling the cork.

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.

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the world's best known red variety, with its full-bodied, intense profile. An offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it is the primary grape of Bordeaux's Left Bank (Medoc and Graves regions) and the Napa Valley, but can be found growing all over the world. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Sauvignon are cassis, cedar, mint, black pepper, eucalyptus, and pencil lead.
