More Vintages and Sizes of Pride Mountain - Sonoma and Napa Claret Reserve:
Author: Robert Parker
The 2003 Reserve Claret is a blend of 67% Merlot and 33% Cabernet Sauvignon that achieved 14.4% alcohol. An exquisite candidate for wine of the vintage, it comes from a vineyard high on the summit of Spring Mountain. Eighty-three percent of the fruit comes from Sonoma and the rest from Napa County as the vineyard sits astride the county lines. Its dark plum/garnet color reveals a slight lightening at the edge. A beautiful nose of cedarwood, forest floor, red and black currants, kirsch and plum is followed by a full-bodied wine with great freshness, a rich, textured mouthfeel and sensational concentration with no heaviness. This is an uplifting, quintessential mountain Cabernet Sauvignon that outperforms the vintage. Just entering its plateau of full maturity, it can be drunk now and over the next decade.

A classy effort. Rich and polished, focused and complex, serving up tiers of ripe currant, mineral, black cherry and plum flavors that fan out evenly on the palate. Gains richness and depth on the finish. Lots of finesse, grace and elegance. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. 402 cases made.

Classic Pride here. Red and black fruits, with cassis, asian spices, cedar wood, and a healthy tannic backbone. Great juice!

Absolutely lovely bottle. Decanted for about 3 hours and consumed with a lamb Easter dinner.
Dark color. Beautiful nose of wild berries and chocolate. Broad palate with very long finish. Balance of acidity and tannins is just perfect. This is silky, rich and round. Wish I had more....
