Pride Mountain Vineyards Red Bordeaux Blend Napa Valley Reserve Claret 1997
The warm and early ripening season of 1997 brought us mountain claret varieties with unbelievable extraction and depth. The Merlot lots were no sooner pressed off when the Cabernets were harvested and fermented. In a vintage with such overall intensity of character, the most highly extracted wines, which were selected for the Reserves, were beyond belief. The Reserve Claret is essentially 2/3 Merlot and 1/3 Cabernet Sauvignon, but a trace of Petit Verdot spiced the blend and lengthened the finish. These are wines for lovers of structure!
