Pretty red garnet. Nose was Pride, but taken down a notch-spices, black fruits. Taste was smooth, nice with a steak dinner. Definitely Pride, but more mellow than the Cab reserves, or even the regular Cabs.
Great nose as soon as it was opened, but put in the decanter for 2 hours and served with marinated pork loin. The decanting did the wine a lot of good. Still shows young. No bricking at the edge. Aromas of black fruit, cocoa, cassis and tobacco. Starting to develop some complexity. The flavors mirrored the nose with some anise in the long smooth finish. The tannin is still there for backbone, but it is very smooth. Great now, but should only improve with a few more years.
