Pride Mountain Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2003
|Brand||Pride Mountain Vineyards|
Wine AdvocateThe dark ruby/purple-hued 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon, a blend of 83% Napa and 17% Sonoma fruit, displays a slight austerity along with drier, tougher tannin than the Merlot or Cabernet Franc. Medium-bodied and well-made, but Bordeaux-like in its backwardness and inaccessibility, this is one of the few Pride Mountain efforts that requires 2-3 years of aging. It should last for 10-12 years.
Wine SpectatorDrying out, with the tannins holding the upper hand, this offers fading anise, licorice and dried dark berry notes. The better of two bottles tasted.-2003 California Cabernet blind retrospective (July 2013). Drink now. 4,210 cases made.
