Pride Mountain Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Reserve 1998

Winemaker's Notes:

This Cabernet Sauvignon displays an extremely dark ruby hue, the first indication of its degree of ripe extraction. The bouquet offers a harmony of black cherry and cassis, cedar and clove with a hint of cocoa. Remarkably even on the palate, the ripe cherry flavors mingle with the character of espresso beans. The tannins provide just enough grip in the finish to indicate that the bottle aging potential should be measured in decades.

People immediately understand why the winery estate was previously named "Summit Ranch." The twisting twenty-minute drive west from St. Helena, or east from Santa Rosa, rewards visitors with a stunning view of rugged Mount St. Helena to the northeast and verdant vineyards rising skyward in all directions. Pride Mountain Vineyards is a 235-acre estate with a wooden-beamed, modest-sized winery that blends smoothly into its mountainous surroundings and California heritage. The charming and unpretentious tasting room offers guests the opportunity to sample the latest vintages while chatting with the gracious and knowledgeable staff. County regulations require that visitors hold a prior appointment. Read less

Saturated purple-ruby. Restrained but complex aromas of blackberry, cassis, violet, licorice, bitter chocolate and minerals. Juicy and very firmly built; conveys a stronger impression of acidity. Black fruits complicated by mocha and dark chocolate n... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1998 Pride Mountain Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 750ml
