2012 Pride Mountain Napa-Sonoma Counties Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1217680 95 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is a killer effort and a fabulous sleeper of the vintage. It is a big cuvée of 5,500-plus cases, aged 20 months in 40% new French oak, and a final blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot from both the Sonoma and Napa sides of their vineyard. Deep purple, with notes of white chocolate, créme de cassis, blackberry, crushed rock and spring flowers, the wine has great intensity and a full-bodied mouthfeel, as well as beautiful purity, ripeness and length. It can be drunk now or cellared for at least another 12-15+ years, which is very much in keeping with the style of the dramatic but great 2012s. (RP) Inner quote mark (10/2015)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark The producer sources from both sides of its bi-county property for this lovely concoction, a mouthfilling mix of black pepper, juicy black plum and berry. Intriguing and complex, it's sublimely elegant, with a dusting of chocolate shavings on the long, velvety finish. (VB) Inner quote mark (12/2015)

Outer quote mark Lots of dark fruit and toasted oak on the nose. Aromatic! Full body, round and soft texture with plenty of ripe fruit, and a fresh finish. Fresh and generous. Inner quote mark (7/2015)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Pride's 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is soft, creamy and voluptuous. Sweet cherry, rose petal, mint, plum, cinnamon, new leather and cedar open up effortlessly in the glass, with silky tannins that add to the wine's sheer appear. The Cabernet Sauvignon captures the open-knit, radiant personality of the vintage to the fullest. (AG) Inner quote mark (10/2015)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Well-built, with a tight core of currant, dark berry, black licorice and cedary oak flavors. A mix of graphite and crushed rock nuances emerges on the finish, where the tannins impart focus and persistence. (JL) Inner quote mark (10/2015)
