Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 89(+?)?

($60) Good medium ruby. Superripe aromas of roasted raspberry, blueberry and smoked meat. Juicy but youthfully subdued in the mouth, with flavors of dark raspberry, smoked meat, chocolate and celery seed. I don't find a lot of lift today, but the firmly tannic finish displays good grip.

Two limited production offerings include the 2006 Syrah, a 600-case red offering floral and blackberry scents, medium to full body, sweet tannin, and a long, lush mouthfeel.

Unbelievable - although I think this may be going back to sleep right now. I believe it was more open and approachable last time (6 months ago)... Had with a simple grilled chicken dinner along with veggies. Dark and brooding fruit - cherries with toasted apple pie. Rich mouth but jut a bit more dry than I remember last time. The supple leather is being replaced with a bit more dry characteristics - which works for this wine. I think it would have opened more if I'd have been a bit more patient and given it an extra hour...but I couldn't. It's that good!

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.
