  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

    (blended with 10% cabernet sauvignon): Moderately saturated bright red-ruby. Sexy aromas of currant, black cherry, chocolate, mocha and brown spices. At once sweet and precise, with captivating inner-mouth floral perfume to the firm-edged flavors of dark berries, graphite and fresh herbs. A bit youthfully taut but this is very impressive for a wine made in large quantity (5,300 cases in 2010). Finishes with lovely verve and the spine for aging.

Pride Mountain Vineyards sits high atop the Mayacamas Mountains straddling the Napa/Sonoma county line. Located at the site of historic Summit Ranch, where wine grapes have been grown since 1869, this beautiful setting includes wine caves dug deep into the mountains and the haunting ruins of an old stone winery dating to 1890.

Founded in 1990 by Jim and Carolyn Pride, Pride Mountain Vineyards is recognized as one of the "world's greatest wine estates" by Robert Parker, Jr., joining just 22 other California wineries for this distinction. Pride wines have appeared numerous times on The Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of the World list, and have been served at the White House more than 30 times during the last two decades.

In 2004, second-generation siblings Suzanne Pride Bryan and Steve Pride took the reins, furthering Pride Mountain Vineyards' tradition of producing highly lauded wines. In the cellar, winemaker Sally Johnson and her team work with the property's exceptional estate-grown cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc, syrah, sangiovese and chardonnay to produce world-class cuvees deserving of a place in any serious collector's cellar.
