A superlative vintage for Cabernet Sauvignon on the mountain has given us a phenomenally extracted wine with uncommon depth of ruby color. In fact, a common description is that it's darker than ink. This Cabernet literally gushes with ripe aromas of black cherries and blackberry, punctuated by mountain spiciness of mint and camphor. Broad and expansive on the mid-palate, flavors of roasted espresso and layers of chocolate mingle with soft supple tannins that pleasantly coat the mouth and betray the wine's youth at bottling. These flavors linger seemingly forever in the finish. The bottle aging potential for this Cabernet Sauvignon can be measured in decades.
"Black Ruby. Brilliantly pure aromas of cassis, blackberry and bitter chocolate. Dense and thick but sharply delineated thanks to powerful underlying structure. Very intense flavors of black fruits. Impressively long on the finish, with tannins thoroughly buffered by the wine's sheer material. "This is our wimpiest lot of cabernet in '99," said Foley, who went on to show me several darker and more powerful components that will serve as the foundation for the Pride reserve wines as well as contribute to this "basic" cabernet bottling.Range: 92-95"
International Wine Cellar
"The 99 vintage produced youthfully brisk wines at Pride's vineyard on top of Spring Mountain. This cabernet is all red fruits - cranberry, cherry and red plum. Yet all that fruit needs cellar time to absorb the hard edges of structure, all the alcohol, the four square tannin, the edgy acidity. The purple black concentration of the color suggests that evolution could be long and well worth the wait."
