Pride Mountain Vineyards Petite Sirah Napa Valley 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

Deep, dark and juicy, this wine is a hedonist’s delight. Notes of mocha and gunflint on the nose suck you in, accompanied by rich blue and black berry fruits, roasted meats, a touch of sage on the palate. Incredibly broad and rich, this wine is balanced by firm acidity and a beautifully broad tannin structure. The finish goes on for days. Appellation: Sonoma County Vintage: 2002 Harvest: October 2002 Fermentation: Stainless Steel Cooperage: French Oak Blend: 100% Syrah Alcohol: 14.3% Bottling: November 2003

Pride Mountain Vineyards:
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.

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

Saying that this has monster fruit would be the understatement of the year. This is so jammy and thick I think I could pour it on my pancakes. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Massively extracted, almost port-like texture on the palate with an instance of mouth puckering tannins and medium/long smooth finish. Sediment coated the glass and my teeth turned purple. This was my first Pride Petite. Wow, what an experience.
