Pride Mountain Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2006
|Brand||Pride Mountain Vineyards|
Wine EnthusiastRichness is what this Cab is all about. It bursts on the palate with superripe blackberry jam, cassis, currant and chocolate flavors. Shows some unorganized structure right now, but should age for a number of years, to judge by the voluminous tannins.
Wine AdvocateThe top end offerings include the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon. Last year I reviewed the 2005 (although it was listed as the 2006), which did not turn out nearly as well as the 2006. The deep ruby/purple-hued 2006 exhibits notes of cassis, tar, crushed rocks, chocolate, and berry fruit in a full-bodied, fleshy format. It should drink nicely for a decade.
Wine SpectatorLots of toasty, creamy oak is wrapped around a supple core of black cherry and currant. Full-bodied, balanced and smooth, ending with complex, fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2014.
