**Two Stars** Pride has here again authored a wine of great size and command. It is intense, focused, deep, tight and open at the same time, loaded with sweet curranty perfumes and happily endowed with rich oak in the nose, and it is full and supple to start on the palate and tannic to finish. Its inviting underbelly is not to be ignored as it gives the wine a certain drinkability even now when paired with chunks of grilled meat, but its convincing fruit and its solidity promise to keep the wine in good stead for years of rewarding aging.
Richness is what this Cab is all about. It bursts on the palate with superripe blackberry jam, cassis, currant and chocolate flavors. Shows some unorganized structure right now, but should age for a number of years, to judge by the voluminous tannins.
The top end offerings include the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon... The deep ruby/purple-hued 2006 exhibits notes of cassis, tar, crushed rocks, chocolate, and berry fruit in a full-bodied, fleshy format. It should drink nicely for a decade. (RP)
Medium ruby-red. Subdued aromas of plum, currant, tar, earth, roasted herbs and cedary spices. The palate offers better definition and energy than the merlot, with nicely perfumed mountain berry and cedar flavors offering sneaky intensity. Finishes with a serious dusting of tannins and good life and length. (ST)
Lots of toasty, creamy oak is wrapped around a supple core of black cherry and currant. Full-bodied, balanced and smooth, ending with complex, fine-grained tannins. (JL)
