Winemaker's Notes:

Our Reserve Cabernet is made from our oldest and most expressive vineyard blocks of Clone 7 Cabernet and is aged in barrel 6 months longer compared to our Pride and Vintner Select cuvees. Deeply concentrated flavors of cassis, black fruit, tar, licorice, and spice satiate the palate and persist with nuanced layering for a minutes long finish.
My Notes:

About Pride Mountain Vineyards:

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.
