Food Pairings for Pride Mountain Vineyards Merlot Napa Sonoma
A dark ruby red color in the glass that after an hour in decanter showed plum sauce, blueberry, brown sugar and vanilla on the nose. Soft and full on the palate with black cherries, cinnamon, dark chocolate and a bit of funky undergrowth that added a savory character. Long mouth coating finish
This Merlot is very sophisticated, and drinks like a big cabernet. Pride really delivered in 06.
From our vineyard atop Spring Mountain, the 2006 vintage produced wines of generous richness and expressive aromatics, and our Merlot is no exception. Red cherry, raspberry, cocoa and tar notes in the nose frame a broad wine with plenty of stuffing. With the first sip, the sensuous mouthfeel leads into the wine’s more serious side, as weighty but sweet tannins extend into a minutes-long finish. The blend is made up of 81% Clone 181 Merlot, contributing classic red fruit and bright acidity, 7% Clone 3 Merlot, adding heady floral and black fruit notes, and 11% Cabernet Sauvignon from our terraced Canyon Ranch vineyard block, bringing structure and focus to the final cuvée. A wine for Cabernet lovers, our Merlot is no wine to underestimate, and will continue to evolve over ten to twelve years in the bottle
