Pride Mountain Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2001

Pride Mountain Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2001

SKU C0189


The depth of color in the 2001 Cabernet is amazing - opaque, purple and inky. Leggy as can be, intoxicatingly dark fruit aromas of currant, cassis and crushed dried herbs enchant the nose, while ripe blackberry flavors explode in the mouth. The tannins are remarkably easygoing and spread evenly across the palate, resolving in a finish that lasts even longer in memory than it does on the tongue.

Wine AdvocateThe 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon is structured and closed, but good. There are 3,000 cases of this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Its inky/purple color is followed by scents of pure creme de cassis intertwined with licorice, smoke, and cigar tobacco. Sweet tannin forms a backdrop for a wine of admirable texture, intensity, and purity. A tremendous experience to smell and taste, it should be at its peak between 2006-2020.

Wine SpectatorDark-colored, with rich mocha, exotic spice, blackberry, cedar, black cherry and currant aromas, it slowly builds intensity and depth and reveals a tight core of deeply concentrated flavors supported by firm, rich tannins. Best from 2005 through 2012.
