Gave it five hours of air. The nose alone was intoxicating with raspberry jam, autumnal spices, tobacco, cocoa and a bit of cedar. Full and sensuous on the palate showing currant, blueberry and violets with a long staying finish.

Wine Advocate ReviewRated 93-96From the barrel, the gorgeous 2005 Reserve Claret should turn out to be a top-notch example of Pride Mountain winemaking. It possesses a deep ruby/purple color as well as notes of black raspberries, espresso, sweet cherries, and notions of cedar as well as graphite. Full-bodied with strong tannins, a velvety texture, a voluptuous, long mouthfeel, and a 45+ second finish, this gorgeous 2005 should age for 15 or more years.Wine Tasting NotesPlum jam, strawberry, kirsh, cocoa and maple syrup candy flavors present a beguiling introduction to a multi-dimensional wine that is both playful and serious. Silky and voluptuous up front, round through the mid-palate, and powerful in the finish, this wine is our classic blend of 2/3 expressive Lower Mountain Top Clone 3 Merlot balanced with 1/3 of our resolute Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon blend. The 2005 vintage presented us with near ideal growing conditions for our dense, mountain-top style. The Reserve Claret is quite approachable in its youth, but bold enough to cellar for 15 years.
