Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 89

($55) Good medium-deep red. High-toned aromas of raspberry, mocha and nutty oak, with a suggestion of berry liqueur. Sweet, lush and broad, with enticing flavors of dried cherry, raspberry and milk chocolate. Finishes with ripe tannins. Interestingly, this struck me as a bit fatter and lower in acidity than the 2004 release.

Pride Mountain consistently does a good job with Sangiovese, and the 2005 offers aromas of saddle leather, underbrush, sweet cherries, and a notion of unsmoked cigar tobacco. Drink it over the next several years.

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.
