Pride Mountain Vineyards Merlot Napa Valley Vintner's Select Cuvée Wind Whistle Vineyard 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

Remarkably intense for a Merlot, and darker in color than most Cabs, the 2000 Merlot from our Wind Whistle vineyard was a shoe-in for the Vintner’s Select. Explosive aromas of rose petals, wild violets and allspice are just the prelude to the burst of ripe cherry and currant that follow on the palate. A huge middle balances the chewy and complimentary tannins and extends into a stunning finish, where the flavors and textures resolve, and the softness of the tannin spectrum is revealed.
