Dark, well-oaked and quite rich, with black cherry, blackberry and currant flavors shaded by toasty oak. New from the winemaker at Pride Mountain Vineyard; a blend of Cabernet and Merlot from the Pride Spring Mountain Vineyard. Drink now through 2008.

This tiny 250-case lot from Pride Mountain Vineyard's winemaker, Robert Foley, exhibits exquisite concentration, balance, and harmony. This opaque purple-colored blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot reveals aromas of licorice, crème de cassis, blackberries, and iron. Full-bodied, rich, and exceptionally well-balanced, this impressive offering can be drunk now and over the next 15 years.
