Pride Mountain Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Pride Mountain Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Sku: 017637

Cabernet is planted on some of our most extreme rocky volcanic soils at 2000+ foot elevation which results in darkened wine color and contributes to the concentrated cassis and chocolate flavors. A classic nose of black currant, cassis, licorice and tobacco, these characteristics also saturate the palate, with cocoa emerging on the minute-long finish. Our Pride Cabernet Sauvignon is sometimes blended with 5% Merlot to broaden the mid-palate when needed, and is always blended with up to 10% Petit Verdot to add brightness and focus to the finish.

2009: 92 Points - Steve Heimoff, Wine Enthusiast: "Shows Pride’s house style, a wildly bold, mountain-concentrated wine that couldn’t possibly be fruitier or riper. Intense flavors of blackberries, blueberries and cedar are wrapped into complex but gentle tannins, making the wine drinkable now. But it should develop over the next 6–8 years. "

2009: 91 (+?) Points - Steve Tanzer, International Wine Cellars: " Bright, medium ruby-red. Aromatic nose combines blueberry, blackberry, tar, espresso and mint. High-toned and intense in the mouth, with the minty blueberry character and harmonious acidity giving the wine an enticing juicy quality. Finishes with firm but fine tannins and the structure to age well. I'd hold this for at least two or three years before pulling the cork."
