Pride Mountain Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Vintner Select 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Our clone 337 cabernet sauvignon has just about the best exposure on our property, tucked along the western ridge where it is bathed in afternoon sunshine throughout the growing season. Clone 337 is all about mid-palate and explosive aromatics, balanced by acidity and mountain tannins, and this 2012 version is a beautiful example. Ripe plum, black tea, blueberry, mint and raspberry create an intriguing interplay of flavors while the wine coats the mouth with velvety richness and lingering density; this represents the very essence of cabernet sauvignon.

People immediately understand why the winery estate was previously named "Summit Ranch." The twisting twenty-minute drive west from St. Helena, or east from Santa Rosa, rewards visitors with a stunning view of rugged Mount St. Helena to the northeast and verdant vineyards rising skyward in all directions. Pride Mountain Vineyards is a 235-acre estate with a wooden-beamed, modest-sized winery that blends smoothly into its mountainous surroundings and California heritage. The charming and unpretentious tasting room offers guests the opportunity to sample the latest vintages while chatting with the gracious and knowledgeable staff. County regulations require that visitors hold a prior appointment. Read less

A bit green and disjointed right down the middle - like its appellation breakdown: 58% Napa Valley, 42% Sonoma. Possibly a fault in the wine or bottle variability. Would like to re-taste.
