Even better than the 1993, the 1994 Reserve Claret (98 cases produced) possesses an opaque purple color, followed by a less-evolved nose with similar underbrush, cassis, smoke, and pain grille notes. Full-bodied, super-extracted, with layers of ripe fruit, and well-integrated tannin and acidity, this is an enormously-endowed, layered wine that unfolds magnificently in the glass and on the palate.

This is a dark, rich, complex wine, loaded with plush currant, black cherry, plum, mineral, spice and cedary oak flavors. Deeply concentrated, the tannins are ripe and polished. Approachable now, but worthy of cellaring. Another impressive offering from this Spring Mountain winery. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.

About This Producer


Riding the crest of the Mayacamas Mountain Range at an elevation of 2,100 feet, Pride Mountain Vineyards' 200+ acre property is bisected by the Napa/Sonoma county line. The family owned winery has been making some of Spring Mountain's best wines since 1990. Winemaker Bob Foley employs the laborious technique of picking, vinifying, and barrel-aging each of 80 vineyard blocks separately, resulting in the most ideal ripeness levels and blend quality. This integration of vineyard practices and winemaking art is done purposefully. The goal is wines that are bold and fruitful, and that speak of their mountain lineage. Considered by Robert Parker to belong in "the top echelon of California's quality wineries," wines from Pride's gravelly mountaintop vineyards are consistently highly rated and are a staple component of any classic Napa collector's cellar.
