Pride Mountain Vineyards 2017 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Black currant, dark chocolate, blueberry, ripe cherry, mint, tea and subtle cedar notes define this complex and brooding wine. The texture is intense and layered, with a corset of velvety tannin that underscores its pure mountain pedigree.

Our Rock Arch vineyard block, the primary source for this wine, is still going strong after 38 years. This fruit is some of the most unique that we farm, pruned to vertical cordons that create an ideal dappled-light environment for the clusters to ripen in. To this core component we added 11% cabernet from our Carolyn's block for roundness, 5% cabernet from our Jim's block for vibrancy and 2% petit verdot for acidity and floral notes. With an intense blue-black color and a finish that just won't quit, it's no wonder this wine is at the apex of our portfolio.

Pride Mountain Philosophy

Our aim is to make big red wines on the black-fruit side of the ripeness spectrum that nonetheless maintain balance, nuance, and complexity. We want our wines to be approachable in their youth, yet to age beneficially for ten to fifteen years. How best to achieve these goals is something we continue to experiment with in small lot trials.

There is sometimes an unfortunate division between wine enthusiasts seeking the elegant nuances of aged French wines, and those seeking the intense fruit concentration of younger California wines. Our attitude is that each wine growing region has its own unique expression that can be embraced and enjoyed for what it is. In California, we have the ability to achieve a level of ripeness that is simply not possible in France. How to make a wine that celebrates this unique gift of ripeness without sacrificing structure, complexity and balance, is an artistic challenge that continues to be our raison detre here at Pride Mountain Vineyards.
