2004 Pride Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

Still a lovely wine and perhaps at peak right now. Dark red in color with no fading at the edges. The nose has ripe plums and cherry. Lush fruit on the palate (but not cloying or overdone). Black cherries, currants, smoke, leather. Beautifully resolved tannins, nice acidity, everything in balance and working together to create something that is greater than the sum of the individual parts. Long, graceful finish of dark fruits and a bit of pepper. Great right now and for at least the next 5 years. 68% of the fruit comes from Sonoma and 32% from Napa. A+
