Composed of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot, with 66% coming from Sonoma and 34% from Napa, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve displays a very deep purple-black color and nose of crushed red and black currants, black cherries and pencil shavings with touches of cloves, bay leaves, damp earth and truffles. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the mouth with juicy red and black fruits, supported by silky, silt-like tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing long with an herbal lift. Rating: 95+
Pride Mountain Vineyards' Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is in many ways the signature of their estate. It is sourced primarily from the oldest vineyard block on the property, a block that was planted in 1982 from field selections taken from two iconic vineyard sites in Napa and Sonoma. The vines are nearly 100% dry-farmed, with roots that stretch as deep as 30’ into red, volcanic soil. This vineyard block consistently produces a powerful, structured wine with layers of fruit and spice, invariably expressing a beautifully intense blue-black color.
This year’s incarnation exhibits rich flavors of black cherry, blackberry, licorice, coffee and black tea. The palate is densely structured, yet round and lush with a velvety and not chalky finish. This 2014 Reserve Cab beautifully balances it’s weighty seriousness with finesse.
