2004 Pride Mountain Sonoma County Cabernet Franc

SKU #1054112 93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This is a fun wine, easy to like. It’s also a serious wine. That’s a hard juggling act, but Pride pulls it off so well. Shows the lighter side of the Cabernet family, with a silky, almost delicate body framing cherry and oak flavors. Yet there’s tremendous depth, and the exquisite tension between fruit, acidity, tannins and wood is as intricate as a Cirque du Soleil trapeze act. Inner quote mark (3/2007)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A showy wine that has substance and depth, with lots of fresh, ripe, vibrant cherry, currant and earthy berry flavors, fine acidity and tannins and a nice splash of toasty oak. The flavors sail on through the long, complex, integrated finish. (JL) Inner quote mark (4/2007)

91 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Grown well, Cabernet Franc can provide the sleek textural beauty of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon without the weight. This one, grown on the border of Napa and Sonoma counties at the top of Spring Mountain, is mostly about that lovely feel. A fine cut of acidity keeps it lifted and fresh, while oak provides most of the flavor for the moment, in scents of espresso and chocolate-rich tannins. A beef tenderloin served with mushrooms will bring out the fruit, as will bottle age. Inner quote mark (2/2007)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Medium red-ruby color. Complex nose melds raspberry, currant, leather, pepper, coffee and fresh herbs. Sweet, high-toned flavors of blueberry and black raspberry, with a peppery element that does not cross over into greenness. This boasts a sappy sugar/acid balance and lovely intensity. Finishes with ripe tannins and very good length. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2007)

K&L Notes

Pride Mountain has had a cult following for years now. Situated high atop Spring Mountain, the winery straddles the Sonoma/Napa county line and commands a spectacular view of Mount St. Helena. The property was a winery well over 100 years ago, and now produces some of the more sought-after wines in California. The reviewers tend to agree with the collectors, as the wines regularly achieve fantastic scores in numerous respected publications.
