Pride Mountain Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Brand||Pride Mountain Vineyards|
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is a beauty and is certainly worth seeking out. Deep black fruits, smoke tobacco, scorched earth and graphite notes all emerge from the glass. It's medium to full-bodied, has terrific purity of fruit, sweet tannins, and the balance to evolve for 15 years or so.
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is a bold, powerful wine that captures the essence of the Pride house style. Black cherry, plum, chocolate, licorice, spice and leather all race out of the glass in this sumptuous, racy Cabernet. There is not a ton of subtlety here, but plenty of richness.
Juicy up front, this is a seriously structured and robust wine, brimming in bold flavors of tar, tobacco and cedar. With 7% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot, it offers concentrated intensity and lush texture.
