Pride Mountain Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Reserve 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

“The 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve must be tasted to be believed. A black/purple color to the rim is accompanied by gorgeous scents of crème de cassis, incense, liquid minerals and graphite. This profound offering is extremely full-bodied as well as rich with high but sweet tannin that coats the palate . . . Pride Mountain Vineyards = brilliance in the bottle!”

Pride Mountain Vineyards:
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.

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

...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... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Phenomenal wine with seductive spicy mocha and chocolaty oak aromas and ripe rich plush currant and blackberry flavors that are deeply concentrated; reveals extra layers of complexity and depth and finishes with a potent burst of ripe flavors. No denying its tannic strength but this wine packs a wallop of fruit as well... Wine Spectator.

Wine Advocate ReviewA potentially perfect wine, which is in bottle after having spent 30 or so months in a combination of old and new oak. The practice under Bob Foley is to first keep the wines in neutral wood as the selections are made for the different cuvees and then, once made, move the wines into new oak until bottling. The 2001 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon (a 1,300-case blend of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 27 months in oak) offers gorgeously fresh, lively, but super-concentrated fruit. Inky blue/purple to the rim, with a spectacular nose of creme de cassis, licorice, camphor, and a hint of vanilla, this wine is sensationally rich, has remarkable intensity, a multi-dimensional palate, and fabulous concentration and depth. It needs another 1-3 years of bottle-age, and should easily and effortlessly evolve for 20 or more years.Wine Tasting NotesThe 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve must be tasted to be believed. A black/purple color to the rim is accompanied by gorgeous scents of crme de cassis, incense, liquid minerals and graphite. This profound offering is extremely full-bodied as well as rich with high but sweet tannin that coats the palate . . . Pride Mountain Vineyards = brilliance in the bottle!
