Tasting Notes

Vinous 92

The 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is a gorgeous wine of its era, when winemaking was under the direction of Bob Foley. Black cherry, chocolate, licorice, tobacco, cedar, torrefaction and toasted oak literally explode from this powerhouse Cabernet. All things considered, the 2001 has aged very well. Personally, I would have preferred to drink this a few years ago, when there was certainly more fruit, but its hard to fault the 2001 too much. It is a very representative wine of 20 years ago in Napa Valley. [Antonio Galloni, 04/06/2023]

Remarkably, the 2001 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon may be even better. Staggeringly pure notes of creme de cassis, violets, licorice and graphite soar from the glass of this inky/purple-colored wine. Composed of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot, and tasting like it is 2-3 years old, it is a stunningly pure, rich, full-bodied, prodigious example of high elevation mountain Cabernet Sauvignon that will not reach full maturity for another 5-7 years, and should age beautifully for another two decades or more. It is a magical wine to smell, taste and contemplate. These impressive 2001s from Pride Mountain Vineyards were made during the regime of Bob Foley and the late Jim Pride. The two most limited production cuvees are the Reserve Claret and Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, which are almost impossible to find. Tel. (707) 963-4949 [Robert Parker, 06/01/2011]
