Rich, complex and exotic, with tempting spice and dark fruit aromas and layers of currant, black cherry, mocha, sandalwood and cherry flavors that are sharply focused, long and intense on the finish. Relies on Merlot (60 percent) for its grace and el... Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 1999 Pride Mountain Vineyards Reserve Claret 750ml

Winemaker's Notes:

In 1993, Jim Pride sat winemaker, Bob Foley down. Although he had no doubt that Bob gave each and every lot his finest attention, he had to have favorite barrels - didn’t he? Bob had to confess that he did. So, Jim issued the challenge: “There are no rules. Make the best wine you can make. If no one else likes it, well . . . we’ll drink it.” And with that the first Reserve Claret was born. And people did like it. In fact, they liked it a lot. Six vintages later, we are proud to offer you the latest incarnation of winemaking without rules. Deep ruby in color and nearly opaque, the bright aromatics leap from the glass, teasing your senses with cherry, currant, clove and allspice. On the palate, layers of ripe berry flavors and friendly soft tannins evenly coat the palate introducing suggestions of dark chocolate and roasted coffee. While doubtless it will be a struggle to decide when to open one of these precious few bottles, know that while the ’99 Claret has the substance to cellar for at least a decade, opening it sooner will not disappoint.
