Reviews for 1999 Pride Mountain Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon

WS 92
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, February 2002
...Well-oaked with creamy mocha-scented flavors leading to a ripe supple complex core of currant black cherry anise spice and mineral. Turns sleek and elegant on the finish with a long lively aftertaste...

Big brash and very rich this mouthfilling Cabernet falls right in step with past Pride Mountain successes and like its precursors it goes for depth and drama rather than poise or prettiness.

Big brash and very rich this mouthfilling Cabernet falls right in step with past Pride Mountain successes and like its precursors it goes for depth and drama rather than poise or prettiness. It is quite high in ripeness and its ample alcohol is hard to miss but equally impossible to ignore is its altogether stunning sense of fruity concentration and the lavish oak that runs its length. Call it slightly overdone if you will but do make the search to find a few bottles for the cellar.

Sappy aromas of black- and redcurrant licorice brown spices and shoe polish. Denser than the cabernet franc bottling with a higher pitch despite its creamy-sweet berry flavors.

Dark plush and elegant this wine defines style. It's fashionably dry and ripe with blackcurrant flavors and low acids. Oak adds vanilla and sweet woody tannins but does not overwhelm. It's what consumers are looking for... Dark plush and elegant this wine defines style. It's fashionably dry and ripe with blackcurrant flavors and low acids. Oak adds vanilla and sweet woody tannins but does not overwhelm. It's what consumers are looking for in an expensive California Cabernet. You could object that it's generically good. It lacks a sense of ground of individuality but that's tilting at windmills.
