Black currant, Morello cherry, and just-ripe black mission fig dance with the aromas of sage, candied violets, star anise, and black truffle. The palate is dense and compact with incredible structure. Layers of complex black and red fruit fill the mouth, while sandalwood, bay, graphite, and forest aromatics linger with the velvety tannins on the long and dynamic finish. This is a showstopper! 70% Napa, 30% Sonoma

Looking at the base Cabernet, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon comes 70% from Napa and 30% from Sonoma. A wonderful nose of blackcurrants, black cherries, bouquet garni, baking spices, and dried tobacco gives way to a medium-bodied, elegant, beautifully balanced Cabernet that's very much in the balanced, fresh, classical style of the vintage. It's ideal for drinking over the coming 10-12 years, and it will probably last even longer.

6% Petit Verdot; 5% Merlot. Ripe and somewhat flashy at first glance, this wine starts off as the drink-me-now sibling among the Pride offerings, but its palatal tannins tell a different story. It is full-bodied and invitingly rich on the palate with the expected notes of currant and toasty oak in good form. And there will be those who will find it a good mate to rich beef roasts even now. For our part, we would prefer it in a more polished state and are content to let it age in the cellar for three to six years at a minimum. And, frankly, it could well gain in smoothness for a good many years after that.
