Pride Mountain Vineyards Syrah Sonoma County 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The nose swirls with concentrated aromas of Bing cherry, rose petal, creosote, sandalwood, butcher block and cardamom. As with every vintage of our Syrah, the 2008 saw no new oak and was 100% de-stemmed, so the kaleidoscope of complexity derives from the grapes alone. The first sip reveals a palate packed with up-front fruit and tempered acidity, followed by a dense mid-palate and a final rush of complex dark fruit flavors. With its seductive aromas, bursting fruit intensity and moderate tannins, our 2008 Syrah is a most intriguing and versatile 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
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
