*9R* 2018 Pride Mountain Vineyards "Reserve" Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley, CA)

Weight: 9R

Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot

Region: Napa Valley, California

Dark, deep and mysterious are the first impressions of this seamless weighty Reserve Cab that is remarkable both for its satisfying density from the attack through the middle and for its silky soothing texture on the long persistent finish, which again is typical of all our 2018 reds.  Concentrated flavors of dark cherry, cacao nibs, anise, cedar and rose flower infuse this strikingly smooth, balanced and rich Reserve Cab, which can be enjoyed early but, as always, has the gravitas for long-term cellaring.
