Vintage: 2004 01/17/2009

Not shy about showing its oak, with plenty of cedar, vanilla bean and spice, yet underneath is a delicious core of currant, blackberry and graphite. Oak returns on the finish, providing a woody mouthfeel, but there's lots of depth and concentration. ... Wine Spectator.

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.
