1996 Pride Mountain Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #300840 92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Complex and well-focused, with integrated ripe plum, currant and blackberry fruit and pretty, vanilla-scented oak shadings. (JL, Web Only-2004) Inner quote mark

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Very ripe aromas of kirsch, licorice, violet, camphor and dusty herbs. Plush and sweet in the mouth; a large-scaled, superripe wine with a slightly roasted quality to its plum syrup, tar and dark chocolate flavors. This powerful, slightly aggressive wine finishes with broad, granular tannins that coat the tongue. Like the 1995, this is far less evolved than the 1994. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2015)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Saturated ruby. Subtle, perfumed, slightly high-toned aromas of cassis and redcurrant; ripe and highly aromatic. Big, lush and dense, with superripe flavors of plum and graphite. Plenty of underlying structure. The tannins here are riper than those of the franc, and the finish is long and smooth. Inner quote mark (5/1999)

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
