Pride Mountain Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Tasting Notes: The final blend expresses ripe fruit notes ranging from blackberry to plum and cassis, as well as nuances of bay laurel, chocolate, black tea, brown sugar, graphite and crushed rose petal. The texture in the mouth is definitely that of a mountain wine, with size and concentration to balance the richness and opulence of its round mid-palate.
Jeb Dunnuck 92/00: More blackcurrant, cassis, tobacco, and damp earth notes emerge from the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon, another medium to full-bodied, balanced, elegant wine in the lineup. With wonderful purity of fruit and a seamless, sumptuous style on the palate, give bottles a year or so and it’s going to drink nicely for 10-15 years. With a mature Cabernet, opt for tender, slow-cooked meat dishes.
Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate 90/00: Composed of 92.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2.5% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon comes from 47% Sonoma County and 53% Napa County. Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, it opens with pronounced notes of blackcurrant pastilles, baked black plums and mulberries plus hints of bay leaves, pencil lead, cedar chest and fallen leaves. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is softly textured and laden with baked black berries and plums flavors, supported by refreshing acidity and finishing with loads of herbal and earth accents.
Food Pairing: Cabernet Sauvignon is right at home with rich, intense meat dishes—beef, lamb and venison, in particular—where its opulent fruit and decisive tannins make an equal match to the dense protein
