Critical Acclaim

ST 93
International Wine Cellar

Deep medium ruby. Black fruits, game, animal fur and brown sugar on the nose. Thick, lush and seamless, with a high-pH mouth feel. Even sweeter and more open-knit than the equally outstanding Reserve Claret that Bob Foley makes for Pride Family Vineyards. Very long finish features fine, spreading tannins and currant and pepper notes.

WS 93
Wine Spectator

Dark in color, with a sleek body and tight beam of spicy, herb-laced cherry, plum and currant, this Cabernet blend firms up nicely on the long, persistent finish, where the tannins anchor the flavors. Shows great depth and complexity. Drink now through 2014. 500 cases made.

The Wine Advocate

There are 400 cases of this blend of equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from Pride Mountain Vineyard's winemaker, Robert Foley. Sadly, most of the 1998 (which I reviewed in issue #141) was destroyed in a warehouse fire. The only bottles that survived were those from his personal cellar and a handful of bottles provided as samples to distributors. The opaque purple-colored 1999 is a seamless classic, offering a sweet perfume of coffee, mocha, graphite, black cherries, licorice, and cassis. The wine reveals sweet tannin, beautiful purity, and a gorgeous layered texture. It should drink well for 15+ years.
