Winemaker Notes

The depth of color in the 2001 Cabernet is amazing – opaque, purple and inky. Leggy as can be, intoxicatingly dark fruit aromas of currant, cassis and crushed dried herbs enchant the nose, while ripe blackberry flavors explode in the mouth. The tannins are remarkably easygoing and spread evenly across the palate, resolving in a finish that lasts even longer in memory than it does on the tongue.

Critical Acclaim

RP 95
The Wine Advocate

Its inky/purple color is followed by scents of pure cr?me de cassis intertwined with licorice, smoke, and cigar tobacco. Sweet tannin forms a backdrop for a wine of admirable texture, intensity, and purity. A tremendous experience to smell and taste, it should be at its peak between 2006-2020.Rating: 95+

WS 93
Wine Spectator

Dark-colored, with rich mocha, exotic spice, blackberry, cedar, black cherry and currant aromas, it slowly builds intensity and depth and reveals a tight core of deeply concentrated flavors supported by firm, rich tannins.

V 92
Vinous / Antonio Galloni

Aromas of blackberry and blackcurrant liqueur, black plum and chocolate. Juicy, penetrating and brooding, yet at the same time sweet and seamless. High-pitched, highly concentrated flavors of black fruits and minerals. A powerfully tannic wine that finishes with terrific thrust. Compared to some of the other Pride 2001's this really demands a few years of cellaring, and may ultimately merit an even higher score.
