90pts Connoisseurs' Guide

2011 may not be a vintage where ripeness is universal, but Pride's full-scaled Cabernet suffers no shortfall in fully ripe fruit and juxtaposes creamy oak with a touch of milk chocolate and well-defined cherries and currants in both its ample aromas and constant, impressively filled flavors. It is still on the tough side but no more so than serious young Cabernet routinely is, and it should show a bit of much needed polish some six to eight years hence.

Winemaker Notes

It is a beautiful wine and one that clearly demonstrates the advantages of our unique mountaintop location and of farming our own property with a full-time vineyard crew. After all of the hard work in the vineyard and in the cellar, the finished wine is just as rich, ripe and balanced as you would expect from Pride. The nose is the essence of cabernet sauvignon with concentrated blackberry, plum, cassis, resin and subtle menthol. On the palate, the wine is round and full while retaining a delightful freshness and a finish that lingers. This is a wine that will show well early in its evolution but age beautifully, and one that was definitely worth the effort!

Winery Notes

Pride Mountain Vineyards is situated on the Summit Ranch, one of Napa Valley's oldest grape producers atop Spring Mountain. With over 120 years of viticulture documented there, Jim and Carolyn Pride purchased Summit Ranch and their first vintage premiered in 1991. Today, Pride Mountain Vineyards produces Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay, Viognier and limited bottlings of Syrah and Sangiovese.
