Critical Acclaim

"Remarkably, the 2001 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon may be even better. Staggeringly pure notes of creme de cassis, violets, licorice and graphite soar from the glass of this inky/purple-colored wine. Composed of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot, and tasting like it is 2-3 years old, it is a stunningly pure, rich, full-bodied, prodigious example of high elevation mountain Cabernet Sauvignon that will not reach full maturity for another 5-7 years, and should age beautifully for another two decades or more. It is a magical wine to smell, taste and contemplate.

"Robust and concentrated, with chewy tannins along with a wealth of juicy, mineral-laced mocha, blackberry, vanilla and cedary black licorice notes that are youthful and focused. Ends with ripe but quite chewy tannins."
97 Points

"Saturated medium ruby. High-pitched nose dominated by black cherry and minerals. Then almost shockingly sweet and creamy in the mouth, like an essence of dark mountain berries and bright minerality. Remarkably pure for a wine at this level of density. Finishes with major but sweet tannins that should carry the wine for 15 or 20 years.
Rating: 94(+?)"

Great wine. Drank side by side with the same vintage non-reserve Pride Cabernet and with eyes closed, none of us (8) could tell the difference. Great wine but I will purchase the cheaper non-reserve going forward.

The northernmost California winegrowing regions, these two counties are right above Napa and Sonoma, geographically. Yet, wine-wise they are very different - both from their southern neighbors and from each other. Notable Facts Mendocino...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
