The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Vintner’s Select (100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 20 months in 40% new French oak) is also an exceptional effort. It boasts a deep purple color along with a classic bouquet of spring flowers, black currants, blackberries, vanillin and graphite. This forceful, rich, well-balanced Cabernet possesses well-integrated acidity, tannin, alcohol and oak. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.
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!
