Pride Mountain Vineyards Cabernet Franc Sonoma County 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

88% Cabernet Franc, 6% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon. Dark penetrating nose of sweet plums and blueberries, moist tobacco and spring acacia flowers. A rich, full, comforting mouthfeel of pure silky pleasure. One wants to hold this luxurious wine in one's mouth forever. The flavors evolve from creamy plum flan to more complex hints of tobacco, cedar and incense. Alcohol 14.6%. 1,119 cases produced.

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

Very nice and expressive nose with cherry liqueur, flowers, and chocolate. Chocolate laced cherry, raspberry, and some sweet soil in the mouth. Coats the mouth very well, medium + bodied, can pass for silky tannins, as they show some activity but they're well resolved and it's absolutely ready to drink. Fruit dominated palate, balanced with decent acidity that pierces through the palate pretty well, and showing some earth notes. Medium finish. 91 points 61% Napa County, 39% Sonoma County - 88% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2.5% Petit Verdot, 0.5% Cabernet Franc
