Pride Mountain Vineyards Red Bordeaux Blend Napa Valley Reserve Claret 1998

Winemaker's Notes:

As this rich claret blend begins to open, the aromas offer a profusion of ripe berries and saddle leather. Tannins are soft and chewy while the mid-palate is round and lush, almost sweet, and explosive with flavors of currant and chocolate, which resolve into dark-roasted coffee elements in the super-long finish. Delicious upon release, ten years bottle age will allow this wine to reach its full potential.

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
