Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90+

($55) Saturated bright ruby color. Explosive, high-toned aromas of blackberry and licorice. Powerful, even a bit tough, with an initial blueberry flavor that was joined by cherry syrup as the wine opened in the glass. A youthfully medicinal wine that finishes with huge tannins and pronounced acidity. Like the syrah, this will need time in bottle. This petite sirah, from fruit purchased from Switchback Ridge, will be the last vintage of this wine under the Pride label.

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.

Wine Varietal: Petite Sirah


Once thought to be a relative of Syrah, this red variety actually shares DNA with the Durif grape. Wines made from Petite Sirah (or Petite Syrah) are robust, tannic, and darkly-colored. It is bottled both as a single variety and used in blends to add body. Petite Sirah grows best in warmer climates such as Argentina and California's Sonoma, Paso Robles, Amador, Mendocino, and Napa regions. Typical descriptors for Petite Sirah include black pepper, jam, and blueberry.
