If you’ve ever made the drive to the very top of Mount St. Helena then you know. If you haven’t then you should, and if you do, book a visit at the summit with Pride Mountain Vineyards (appointments are required by county law there).
The property straddles the Napa/Sonoma line – there’s a brick line that crossed through the crush pad. The views are amazing. The soil is unique and distinctive, and the wines highly collectable.
2019 was a near perfect vintage there. Early spring provided just enough rain to build up some small reserves which protected the vines from the occasional heat spikes. A mild fall allowed for an extremely generous picking schedule allowing each grape to be picked at optimum maturity.
This is your textbook contemplative Cabernet. Big, bold, and brash mountain fruit displaying a medley of dark fruits highlighted by Bing Cherries, ripe plum but with underlying tones of aged tobacco, sandalwood, and dark chocolate.
It’s a phenomenal Cabernet that is usually pretty highly allocated.
