Pride Cabernet Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 750ml, Napa & Sonoma Co., California

2017 vintage – 53% Napa / 47% Sonoma. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Classic mountain Cab, this wine expresses blackberry, blueberry, cassis, mocha, and a touch of freshly crushed mint. The velvety tannins are present both up-front and throughout the lengthy finish, while the midpalate is round, opaque and silky. Twenty-one individual wine lots were fermented in stainless steel vats for 14 – 25 days and were then gently pressed to French oak barrels, 50% new, for 19 months of barrel aging.
