2002 Pride Mountain Sonoma County Cabernet Franc

SKU #1072981 93 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark I loved the penetrating aromatics and floral, blueberry, and menthol notes of the deep ruby/purple-colored 2002 Cabernet Franc. The blend is actually 75% Cabernet Franc and 25% Merlot. The flamboyant fragrance jumps from the glass of this sweetheart of a wine. There is tremendous concentration and intensity of flavor, yet the wine is light on its feet, with a surreal, ethereal flavor profile. Cabernet Franc can do some special things in California, and it is good to see this wine perform so well. (RP) Inner quote mark (2/2005)

91 points Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good deep red-ruby. Fresh, sweet aromas of blueberry, camphor and green tea. Juicy and penetrating, with strong acidity to balance the very ripe fruit. Complicating note of tobacco. Finishes with broad, dusty tannins and excellent length. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2005)

91 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Built on a rich contrast of sweet dark cherry flavors and substantial, umami-toned tannins, this cabernet franc from the heights of Spring Mountain grows smoother and more complex with a day of air. The layered, dark mushroom character will meld with roast duck. Inner quote mark (6/2005)

K&L Notes

The cult following for Pride Mountain has been in full force for years now. Situated high up at the top of 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.
