Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 93

($57) Bright medium ruby. Knockout Cote-Rotie-like nose offers raspberry, brown spices, white pepper and smoked meat. The seamless palate boasts terrific intensity of dark berry, pepper and spice flavors and wonderfully suave tannins. A wine of exhilarating fruit and cut-an outstanding mountaintop syrah.

The soft, supple, velvety-textured 2005 Syrah reveals notes of blackberries, bacon fat, camphor, pepper, and black olives. This fruit forward beauty is ideal for drinking over the next 7-8 years.

Wine Spectator | 91

Distinct for its wide range of flavors, with a mix of earthy mineral, pebble, leather and beefy, peppery berry notes. The earthiness provides a nice baseline, adding herb, sage and mineral notes. 656 cases made.

Site Blog: The Wine Forum Good stuff, settled in and not an oak beast like I was expecting. Excellent fruit, concentrated and pure this can go easily another 5-8 years as it has mellowed some in the tannin dept. Spice, meat, pepper, currant, great acidity. Nicely done.

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.
