Pride Mountain Vineyards Sangiovese Sonoma County 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Completing the circle, the 2009 Sangiovese is our first red wine to be released from the 2009 vintage, and was made from some of the first red grapes to be picked that year. 2009 is a vintage of balance – ripeness, acidity, tannins, elegance and varietal character are all in exceptional harmony. After aging in barrels for twelve months, the Sangiovese was blended with 15% Cabernet Sauvignon from our Rock Arch vineyard in order to add density and weight. Rich flavors of strawberry, dried cherry and graphite are packed into a concentrated, yet classic, Sangiovese.

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

Very lush, very fruit forward. Lots of cherry and plum on the nose and palate. Very nice limited production wine.

Pride Mountain consistently does a good job with Sangiovese, and the 2005 offers aromas of saddle leather, underbrush, sweet cherries, and a notion of unsmoked cigar tobacco. Drink it over the next several years. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Sangiovese wine from California in USA. 2005 Pride Mountain Vineyards Sangiovese 500ml

The beautiful 2004 Sangiovese offers classic strawberry, earth, and leathery aromas, medium body, fine texture, a layered mouthfeel, and surprising depth.

...Dried red fruits and dried rose on the nose, with complicating notes of nuts and baking spices; in a distinctly Tuscan style. Superripe and sweet, but with lively acids giving shape to the redcurrant, plum and nut flavors. At once dense and fresh;... Stephen Tanzer's IWC.

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.
