Pride Mountain Vineyards Merlot Napa Sonoma 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

Like so many things of great beauty, our 2002 Merlot lots were shy in their infancy, evolving slowly before strutting their stuff and blowing us away with their power and grace. Now? Wow! As a finished wine, this cuvee reveals thoroughly ripe blackberry aromas and flavors with a seductively rich mid palate. Tronçais oak cooperage contributes a balanced oak profile reminiscent of roasted espresso beans. 100% Merlot, our 2002 Merlot is blended from twelve individually vinified lots culled from vineyard blocks spanning our mountaintop estate, and consequently, the county line

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

...elegant, with wonderfully sweet black cherry fruit intermixed with a hint of mocha, white chocolate, and some background sappy wood notes. Its beautiful integration of acidity and tannin make for an elegant, polished, and stunning... Robert Parker. A Merlot wine from California in USA. 2002 Pride Mountain Vineyards Merlot 750ml
