Defines the Pride Cabernet style of big, rich, ripely extracted fruit, significant oak and dense mountain tannins. Harder to describe is just how dramatic the wine feels in the mouth. Offers black currant, cassis liqueur and dark chocolate flavors subtlely tinged with herbs and tannins.
Subdued but pure aromas of cassis, licorice, herbs and tobacco leaf, complicated by notes of sweet butter, pepper and vanillin oak. Perfumed and fine-grained in the mouth, with a restrained sweetness and very good thrust to the black cherry, currant and tobacco leaf flavors. Finishes with a firm spine of lively acids and chalky tannins and very good length. As with the Merlot, the fruit was picked into early November. (ST) 91+
We are not averse to ripe-leaning Cabernets but, as is the case here, there is sometimes a price to be paid for the considerable richness they afford. Teetering right at the edge of simply being too much, this gusty, very full-bodied effort is arguably as ripe as it is fruity, and its brand of no-holds-barred richness comes with a fair bit of undisguised heat. It can be enjoyed with well-seasoned stews and braised meats a few years from now, but we would opt for at least another five or six years of age before pulling its cork. *One Star*
The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon (75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot) comes from a much stronger vintage than 2011. It exhibits deep, charcoal-infused, creme de cassis, blackberry, licorice and subtle smoke notes in addition to admirable texture and a soft, consumer-friendly style. (RP)
A bit more restrained than previous Prides. All three bottles were tight, with crisp tannins, laced with cedar, dried dark berry and spice, ending with dry tannins and a dash of licorice. Should improve with a year or two of age. (JL, Web-2013)
