Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 94

The greatest northern California Sangiovese, the 2001 Sangiovese blows away its competition. Strawberry jam, tobacco leaf, plum, and fig characteristics skip and hop to the beat of a large orchestra in this bottle that is available only in 500 ml formats. Drink this knock-out 2001 over the next 5-7 years. It will make anyone believe that Sangiovese as well as Merlot are not always the great red wine rip offs of California.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 88?

($55; 15% alcohol; includes 24% cabernet sauvignon) Saturated medium ruby. Rather porty aromas of wild berry jelly, dark chocolate, tobacco, licorice and roasted nuts. Superripe, glyceral-rich and sweet, with port-like chocolatey surmaturite and a very supple texture. Finishes with huge but ripe tannins. A very rich wine made from late-picked grapes, but not oxidized. Still, this is not my favorite style of sangiovese.

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.
