Pride Mountain Vineyards Cabernet Franc Sonoma County 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

This year’s offering is packed with red fruit notes from raspberry to cherry pie, and also has nuances of blue fruit, including blueberry and black raspberry. Chocolate and maple flavors and a hint of violets complete the nose. On the palate, this is one of our most concentrated Cabernet Francs yet, with a syrupy texture that coats the entire mouth, big but ripe tannins, and our Cabernet Franc’s characteristic bright acidity. Rounding out the wine, 14% Merlot from our Rocky Top vineyard block adds supple red fruit while 6% Cabernet Sauvignon from our Quartz Hill and Chalk Hill vineyard blocks provides structure and intensity.

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

Smooth with a bit of Cabernet Savignon added for structure. Deep color. Easy to drink wine that you don't have to think about to much.
