The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon is outstanding. A blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot, it was aged 20 months in 40% new French oak, and there are nearly 5,200 cases. A strong effort in this vintage, it boasts ripe black raspberry and blackcurrant fruit intermixed with underbrush and dusty, loamy soil characteristics. The complex aromatics are followed by a beautifully poised, pure, medium to full-bodied Cabernet with silky tannins and a precocious, lush personality. It can be drunk now and over the next decade.
Nestled in the Mayacamas Mountains between St. Helena and Santa Rosa, the picturesque 235 acre estate of Pride Mountain Vineyards produces unique wines in contrast to those made in the neighboring valleys. The vineyards are set above the fog line, which enables the grapes to be exposed to California's hot sun from dawn to dusk. As a result, the flavors of these wines tend to be rich with ripe black fruits, "balance, nuance, and complexity." They are made to be approachable at a young age with the capability to age beneficially for 10-15 years. Cheers to Pride Mountain wines!
