Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93

($75; routinely made from Pride's "Mountain-Top Vineyard" block) Good red-ruby. Captivating high-toned, liqueur-like aromas of cherry and chocolate. Sweet to the point of unctuous, with concentrated, expressive red fruit and chocolate flavors of impressive depth. Finishes very long and sweet, with big but lush tannins.

Outstanding wine - secondary notes starting to show, oak slowly fading into the background and the earth/spice takes over. Currants and dried cherries. Sadly its our last bottle...

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.
