Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89

($56) Good full red. Perfumed aromas of redcurrant, plum and licorice, lifted by a floral nuance. Bigger, richer and plumper than the cabernet franc, but a bit youthfully mute and evolving slowly. Dominated by red berries today and displaying solid supporting structure. Finishes with dusty tannins. This will need some bottle aging to develop more aromatic complexity.

I used to not be a big Merlot fan, as most of them were too light for me. But I have discovered fuller bodied Merlot's that are excellent. This wine is really elegant. Blackberry, dark cherry and vanilla flavors, with a good body and long finish for a Merlot. Tasted three times with consistent results.

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: Merlot


Merlot shares many of the same profile descriptors as Cabernet Sauvignon including plum, blackberry, chocolate and mocha. Bordeaux's Right Bank, such as in Pomerol and St.-Emilion, is the traditional home to this red grape, but it is grown all over the world. Merlot is either bottled on its own or is blended with other red grapes.
