Pride Mountain Vineyards Chardonnay Sonoma County Vintner's Select Cuvée Mountain Top Vineyard 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

2005 was a great year for our small 1.2 acre chardonnay block that is the sole source of our Vintner Select Chardonnay. A warm summer ripening season transitioned to a perfect autumn harvest. The result is a hugely concentrated golden-hued chardonnay possessing a nose of butterscotch and lemons that satiates the senses. The indulgent palate reminds of lemon chiffon pie with persistent lingering flavors of pear nectar, citrus and more butterscotch. This full-bodied beauty holds her own even when tasted after our red wines.

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
