Pride Mountain Vineyards Red Bordeaux Blend Napa Valley Reserve Claret 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

From Bob Foley: A Superman’s Merlot! A 2/3 - 1/3 blend with Cabernet Sauvignon and just a splash of Petit Verdot, the depth of color makes for a virtually opaque appearance. Ripe red cherry, cassis and a trace of cedar grace the aromatic medley. Sweet rich textures flood the palate with berry, chocolate and espresso flavors framed by fine mouthwatering tannins. These flavors linger in an exceptional finish that extends for several minutes.

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

One of the best Napa Cab blends I've ever had. The slight cinnamon flavor just about rocked my world.

A seductive style that provides a rich mix of ripe, juicy wild berry and blackberry fruit with an overlay of smoky, toasty oak. But on the finish, it comes together nicely, with the fruit pushing past the oak flavors, caressed by supple tannins... Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 2002 Pride Mountain Vineyards Reserve Claret 750ml
