Pride Mountain Vineyards Sangiovese Sonoma County 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

When just a few short years ago our token seventy-five Sangiovese vines kicked out their first fifteen gallons of wine, we wondered where this program would go. Now a decade old, these vines are producing fruit of such character that we simply can’t get enough of it. Cabernet Sauvignon adds complexity and preserves the seductive texture of the mountain-grown Sangiovese, while a splash of Petit Verdot lengthens the finish. The remarkably dark ruby-red color betrays the mountain origins of this wine, while bright wild berry aromas interplay with exotic spice and explode across the entire palate. Amazingly mouth-filling and superbly rich on the mid-palate, the berry flavors seem to dance and then linger in an unbelievably lengthy finish. Beautifully balanced, the fresh fruit-packed personality of this Super-Tuscan blend marks this as a classic Bob Foley bring-your-toothbrush wine.

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

The greatest northern California Sangiovese, the 2001 Sangiovese blows away its competition. Strawberry jam, tobacco leaf, plum, and fig characteristics skip and hop to the beat of a large orchestra in this bottle that is available only in 500 ml for... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Sangiovese wine from California in USA. 2001 Pride Mountain Vineyards Sangiovese 500ml
