Winemaker Notes

While our Reserve Cabernet is masculine, potent and extracted, this wine displays the more feminine side of Cabernet. Grapes from clone 337 vines, known for their elegance and syrupy mouthfeel, display black notes of ripe cherry, chocolate, and a hint of black currant. Dense and luscious in the mouth, this wine coats the tongue with a rich viscosity and a finish that is weighty without being aggressive.

Critical Acclaim

RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The brilliant 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Vintner's Select boasts copious aromas of lead pencil shavings, spring flowers, blueberries, black raspberries, and cassis. Full-bodied and powerful, this dense ruby/purple tinged offering is a tour de force in Cabernet Sauvignon. It possesses enough sweet tannin to provide early accessibility, but it should age beautifully for 10-15+ years.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Smooth, rich and creamy, with firm yet elegant dried currant and blackberry flavors that are focused and lively, gaining complexity and depth on the long finish. Drink now through 2012. 400 cases made.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Big, powerful and high in alcohol. The grapes evidently got super-ripe, giving the wine massive blackberry and chocolate-covered raisin flavors that have been liberally enhanced with smoky new oak. Tannins are pretty tight, coming from Pride’s 2100 foot elevation spanning the Napa-Sonoma border. A little awkward now. Give it a few years.

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
