2011 Pride Mountain Vineyards Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, California, USA
ROBERT PARKERThere are 1,374 cases of the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, which spent 22 months in 40% new French oak. It exhibits classic notes of new saddle leather, unsmoked cigar tobacco, red and blackcurrants, and loamy soil undertones in a full-bodied, intense, opulent, fleshy style. 85% came from Sonoma County and 15% from Napa County. This beauty is on a fast evolutionary track, so drink it during its first 7-8 years of life.
VINOUSThe 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve has held up well, although the first signs of fraying can be seen around the edges. There is still plenty of depth left, that is obvious, but some of the freshness is starting to fade. Red plum, mint, mocha and blood orange open nicely in the glass. Even so, it is pretty clear the 2011 will not improve, although it might remain at this plateau of maturity for a few years before the fruit totally fades.
