About Pride Mountain Vineyards

Nestled above the Spring Mountain fog, on the Napa-Sonoma county line, Pride Mountain Vineyard sits on a former 340-acre agricultural Summit Ranch. In 1989, when Jim and Carolyn Pride purchased the spread they planned on growing grapes to sell, but soon caught the bug and built a winery.

92(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2004

($56; 100% cabernet sauvignon) Aromas of blackberry and blackcurrant liqueur, black plum and chocolate. Juicy, penetrating and brooding, yet at the same time sweet and seamless. High-pitched, highly concentrated flavors of black fruits and minerals. A powerfully tannic wine that finishes with terrific thrust. Compared to some of the other Pride 2001s, this really demands a few years of cellaring, and may ultimately merit an even higher score.

One of the best Pride's ever! No wonder you can't get any more. No problem, I still have a case or so....but it's hard not to drink it all! Long finish, very smooth. Nothing bad to say

Hits your palate like a Hummer at full speed. Thick juicy dark purple currant that stains everything in its path. Tremendous combination of fruit and tannins. Smooth and drinkable now, but truly needs til 2008+ to balance all the tannins and acid. Definately will be one of the best Napa/Sonoma Cabs for the 2001 Vintage. 95pts

From Mount St. Helena to the city of Napa, the valley is defined by two north-south ridgelines of the Coast Range Mountains.

Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon built its reputation on Bordeaux's Left Bank. Here, in the district of Medoc, the varietal is the key component of blended wines that also may include some Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and even Malbec and Petit Verdot. Moving slightly south, Cabernet Sauvignon meets Merlot in roughly equal proportions in the red wines of Graves. In both of these Bordeaux regions, the top bottles...
