Pride Mountain Vineyards Merlot Napa Valley Vintner's Select Cuvée Wind Whistle Vineyard 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The hits from the much-awaited 2007 vintage continue to roll out. Our Vintner Select Merlot, crafted from 100% Clone 3 Merlot from our aromatic and unctuous Lower Mountain Top vineyard block (the same block that is used as the Merlot component in our Reserve Claret), is an in-house favorite. Across the board, our 2007 vintage wines express pure varietal character paired with tremendous ageability, and are classic examples of the Pride terroir. Undulating layers of supple flavors, ranging from fresh strawberry to graphite, raspberry, black cherry and bitter cocoa, dance on the palate. This wine is our classic “Cab-lover’s Merlot,” even bigger and silkier than our estate offering, and is poised to evolve over the next decade and beyond.

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
