Pride Mountain Vineyards Syrah Sonoma County 2002
Deep, dark and juicy, this wine is a hedonist’s delight. Notes of mocha and gunflint on the nose suck you in, accompanied by rich blue and black berry fruits, roasted meats, a touch of sage on the palate. Incredibly broad and rich, this wine is balanced by firm acidity and a beautifully broad tannin structure. The finish goes on for days.
Syrah is not the grape that most people associate with Pride Mountain. That said, the results are impressive. The variety of berry fruit that comes through early wins my palate over, and the later vanilla notes soothe for a long finish. I'm holding a few bottles back to try in another 3 to 4 years. Fortunately that leaves some to drink now.
External Reviews for Pride Mountain Vineyards Syrah Sonoma County
Good full ruby. Superripe aromas of mocha, gunflint, minerals and roasted game. Sweet on entry, then aromatic and minerally, with vinous, lively flavors of dark fruits, dark chocolate and spices. Not thick but intensely flavored and juicy. Finishes l... Stephen Tanzer. A Syrah wine from California in USA. 2002 Pride Mountain Vineyards Syrah 750ml
