($55) Good medium red with an orange rim. Dried red fruits and dried rose on the nose, with complicating notes of nuts and baking spices; in a distinctly Tuscan style. Superripe and sweet, but with lively acids giving shape to the redcurrant, plum and nut flavors. At once dense and fresh; in fact, less roasted than the 2002 version. Finishes with dusty tannins and good verve. This bottling includes 10% merlo t; previous vintages were generally a 75/25 blend of sangiovese and cabernet. Incidentally, this wine has always been bottled in 500 ml. format because the first vintage was close to 17% alcohol.

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.
