Producer Notes

Riding the crest of the Mayacamas Mountain Range at an elevation of 2,100 feet, Pride Mountain Vineyards' 200+ acre property is bisected by the Napa/Sonoma county line. The family owned winery has been making some of Spring Mountain's best wines since 1990.

Consumed over two nights. A bit better on night two, but still great as a pop and pour. Red fruits, asian spice, kirsch, cassis, and solid tannins, all make this another Pride winner. Very enjoyable mountain fruit!

Absolute knock out! Could be at its peak and alas...my last bottle. Beautiful depth and structure with integrated fruit and tannins. Incredible length.

The dark ruby/purple-hued 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon, a blend of 83% Napa and 17% Sonoma fruit, displays a slight austerity along with drier, tougher tannin than the Merlot or Cabernet Franc. Medium-bodied and well-made, but Bordeaux-like in its backwardness and inaccessibility, this is one of the few Pride Mountain efforts that requires 2-3 years of aging. It should last for 10-12 years.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
