Pride Mountain Vineyards Merlot Napa Sonoma 1997
The level of extraction in the 1997 reds is quite remarkable, providing a rich body and an intense fruit character of cassis and blackberry. The use of new French oak during the barrel aging of these beauties was increased to match the ripe dynamics of these wines. The resulting oak character is reminiscent of sweet clove and cedar. Tannins are ample for extended bottle aging but soft and supple enough to enjoy this Merlot in its vibrant youth. Cabernet Sauvignon was blended (10%) for added complexity and textural contribution.

Wonderful ripe fruit is the hallmark of this lovely California Merlot, which displays rich and complex cherry, currant, anise, cedar and spice flavors. Gains in depth and nuance through the finish, where it keeps pumping out the flavors... Wine Spectator. A Merlot wine from California in USA. 1997 Pride Mountain Vineyards Merlot 750ml
