Pride Mountain Vineyards Cabernet Franc Sonoma County 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

The Cabernet franc variety greatly benefits from a long even ripening season such as that of the 1999 vintage. Ripe blueberry and green tea aromas seem to dance from the glass. An underlying cocoa element unfolds in the rich middle on the palate. 25% Merlot was blended with the Cabernet franc to provide additional layers of texture and to augment the delicious berry flavors. Fine tannins in the finish provide just enough grip.

Pride Mountain Vineyards:
People immediately understand why the winery estate was previously named "Summit Ranch." The twisting twenty-minute drive west from St. Helena, or east from Santa Rosa, rewards visitors with a stunning view of rugged Mount St. Helena to the northeast and verdant vineyards rising skyward in all directions.

People immediately understand why the winery estate was previously named "Summit Ranch." The twisting twenty-minute drive west from St. Helena, or east from Santa Rosa, rewards visitors with a stunning view of rugged Mount St. Helena to the northeast and verdant vineyards rising skyward in all directions. Pride Mountain Vineyards is a 235-acre estate with a wooden-beamed, modest-sized winery that blends smoothly into its mountainous surroundings and California heritage. The charming and unpretentious tasting room offers guests the opportunity to sample the latest vintages while chatting with the gracious and knowledgeable staff. County regulations require that visitors hold a prior appointment. Read less

A smooth, rich, silky style, with ripe, complex currant, black cherry, herb, cedar, chocolate and vanilla. Finishes with a long, complex aftertaste that keeps pumping out the flavors. Drink now through 2007. 1,000 cases made. (JL) Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Franc wine from California in USA. 1999 Pride Mountain Vineyards Cabernet Franc 750ml
