    May 7, 2019 - 13% ABV. I let it breathe for 30 minutes then drank over the next 2.5 hours. Probably a year or two past its prime. Slight bricking. Chewy tannins, but acidity is higher than I prefer.

    August 1, 2018 - Served alongside a 1994 Dunn Howell Mountain and the Pride showed well, quite similar in fact, just with a bit more vanilla and heat. The alcohol definitely tastes warmer than the label's modest 13%. Aging has help the wine. This Pride has emerged a balanced and complex Cabernet. Plenty of cherry and licorice, with a long finish of berries, tar, and dark fruits. Very nice with years to go.

    July 14, 2017 - Tasted blind with several other 1994 Napa Cabs (Shafer Hillside Select, Dalla Valle Maya, Abreu Madrona Ranch). Bottle of sound provenance with fill level high into the neck. Opulent nose with primary notes of cherry, dark fruit, leather and currant. Secondary aromas included fruit jam, lees and cut wood. Tannins were well integrated and pleasant on the finish (40 sec). Structure was present for another 10+ years of prime drinking window. Scored highest of the group.

    September 20, 2014 - Napa 1994 (@ JK): Beautiful bouquet with red and dark berries and bell pepper. On the palate a concentrated wine with cassis and blackberries and chocolate. Firm acidity and the tannin still has a good bite. Beautiful wine which lacks a bit in finesse maybe.

    September 20, 2014 - 94 Napa: a 20-year retrospective @ my place (Netherlands): Hot wine, alcohol marks the finish. Very dense, concentrated and serious, lots of graphite, black and red fruit, acidic backbone peeks out. Somehow I felt that the structure of this wine was too loose, alcohol not integrated (yet), searching for balance, slightly tiresome. Good stuff, yes. But not very emotional nor extraordinary to me. Other were more positive. 91/100 (group scores 90-96)
