Food Pairings for Pride Mountain Vineyards Merlot Napa Sonoma
A luminescent, cherry red color. Rich aromas rise from the glass, first of plum, licorice and vanilla but then an underlying hint of forest floor which adds an inviting complexity to the bouquet. A rich, brooding and palate coating wine that tastes of raisins and black currant jam with a seductive cinnamon, chocolate finish that goes on and on. Chewy yet easy drinking and surprisingly refreshing. This is not a wine for the timid, this is decadence in a bottle.
A fantastic wine! Starts out with a beautiful mineral nose of plums, dark fruit and has a menthol edge. It really comes over as mineral, more concentrated mountain fruit. Very tasty and has a great tobacco finish. I really really liked this wine - its, as they say, a Merlot, for Cab lovers!
They've done it again! Merlot's grown at these altitudes and crafted with such skill are hard to find, but Pride seems to have it down to a science. The huge, plummy flavors end with a long, licorice finish.
liked it a lot, almost an acquired taste because it's so earthy and distinctive.
External Reviews for Pride Mountain Vineyards Merlot Napa Sonoma
Complex, with lively vanilla, berry, cherry, plum and currant that fan out on the finish with finesse and polish.
Notable for its complexity, this lively Merlot boasts an attractive range of vanilla, berry, cherry, plum and currant flavors that fan out on the finish, showing a measure of finesse and polish. From a winery displaying ever-increasing skill with this variety. Best after 1999 through 2004.
The superb 2005 Merlot, a blend of fruit from Napa (70%) and Sonoma (30%), exhibits sweet plum and black currant fruit intermixed with mocha, coffee, and earth notes. This medium to full-bodied, elegant, lush, heady wine begs for consumption over the next 7ndash;8 years.
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. Drink now through 2006.
A blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 1996 Merlot boasts a dense purple color, as well as a beautiful nose of black fruits, smoke, herbs, and underbrush. Thick and full-bodied, with terrific fruit, purity, and extraction, this is a deeper, richer, more complete wine than originally predicted. It should age well for 10-12 years.
What power and drama have gone into this wonderful wine. Sheer Pomerol, with pencil shaving, black cherry, cedar, chocolate and gamy-meaty aromas and flavors, tinged with violets, and the most voluptuous mouthfeel. Sheer hedonism right through the long sweet finish.
Ripe and fleshy, with a pretty dash of toasty oak. The fruit is sweet, with currant and berry flavors that are intense, concentrated and complex, ending with a pretty burst of fruit and oak that lingers. Well-structured, with ripe tannins. Drink now through 2013.
Very ripe, blackberry and currant aromas with a trace of vanilla. Broad, expansive and even across the mid-palate, with a candy-like middle and chewy tannins. Soft edges and tremendous length. Merlot for Cab people!
