2003 Pride Mountain Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon
|Robert Foley's 2003 Pride Mountain Cabernet|
4200 cases made of this Parker 91 pointer. Making its debut in 2003, Pride's youngest Cabernet Sauvignon vines located on the Sonoma portion of their mountaintop property make a stunning contribution to the first Pride Cabernet bearing a label that indicates the estate’s unique position straddling the county line.
Decanted about an hour before drinking. Dark fruit and a nice spice on the nose and on the front. The mid-palate brings hints of black cherry, cloves and a bit of chocolate. Surprisingly good balance and structure for one of my least favorite '90's California Cabernet vintages. It lacked some of the richness usually found in Pride Cabernets, but the finish was solid and longer than expected. A nice Robert Foley crafted wine.--BacchusBrad
