A Merlot wine from California in USA. 1996 Pride Mountain Vineyards Merlot 750ml


Winemaker's Notes:

The length of the ripening season contributed to the extraordinary character of the 1996 wines. The Merlot was harvested in mid-October at full fruit development and the Cabernet Sauvignon harvest extended into mid-November. Full ripe rich aromas and textures are married with the sweet spice of the finest French oak barrels. The fine balance and extraordinarily dark ruby hue assure that our Merlot will continue to develop in the bottle for years to come. Pride Mountain Vineyards is located on the very top of Spring Mountain, above 2,000 feet in elevation, at the site of the historic Summit Ranch. The original winery building dating back to 1890 still stands. Currently 58 acres of vines produce grapes for our Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay, Viognier and Petit Verdot.
