Pride Mountain Vineyards Syrah Sonoma County 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Each year, our Syrah pushes the definition of concentration to new limits, and 2006 continues the tradition. Planted in sandy, quartz-rich soil to limit their potential for vigor, our Syrah vines ripened blue-black grapes replete with spice and berry. The élévage was strictly in neutral French oak barrels to enhance the expressive fruit character of the wine. With blueberry, jasmine, butcher board and anise on the nose, the wine reveals waves of complexity. Dense and utterly bursting with lush berry fruit, the deeply textured palate delivers on the promise of the wine’s heady aromatics. Truly, this is a wine that is all about richness and mid-palate: acidity is present yet balanced, providing a counterpoint to the wine’s heft, while ripe tannins provide length without dryness

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
