Staggeringly pure notes of creme de cassis, violets, licorice and graphite soar from the glass of this inky/purple-colored wine. Composed of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot, and tasting like it is 2-3 years old, it is a stunningly pure, rich, full-bodied, prodigious example of high elevation mountain Cabernet Sauvignon that will not reach full maturity for another 5-7 years, and should age beautifully for another two decades or more. It is a magical wine to smell, taste and contemplate. These impressive 2001s from Pride Mountain Vineyards were made during the regime of Bob Foley and the late Jim Pride. The two most limited production cuvees are the Reserve Claret and Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, which are almost impossible to find. (RP) 98+
Robust and concentrated, with chewy tannins along with a wealth of juicy, mineral-laced mocha, blackberry, vanilla and cedary black licorice notes that are youthful and focused. Ends with ripe but quite chewy tannins. Drink now through 2022. (JL, Web Only-2011)
Healthy bright ruby-red. Very ripe aromas of black raspberry liqueur, coffee, mocha, chocolate, cedar and spicecake, all lifted by a floral topnote. Sweet, pliant and rich, showing the mid-palate stuffing and layered texture the 2000 lacks; this plush, wonderfully creamy wine surprised me with its inner-mouth energy and powerful structure. The wine's dark berry, anise and graphite flavors have the body and richness to support the huge but even palate-saturating tannins. A beauty. Pride noted that early on, this hot-vintage wine was 'a big block.' Today it's showing more definition. (ST)
