Food Pairings for Pride Mountain Vineyards Syrah Sonoma County
Totally bogus pricing for this wine from $12 to $70...very much disservice to the community.
Very spicy notes of black and white pepper. Interesting mineral notes after the spices and a medium length finish. My wife didn't like this wine.
Super opaque in color. On the nose there was a enticing sweet boysenberry, blueberries and pure vanilla extract-american oak quality I really liked. The palate exposed super deep plush & dark fruits as previously mentioned in a sea of smooth tannins. There was a flowery quality present as well as some pepper notes. The finish was long and sweet. A velvet fist wrapped in an iron glove. (waiting to put this expression in words for years).I gotta say, I have had this a few times and this showed the best yet. I am glad I held onto my bottles. Perfect served during family BBQ. It was a hit amongst the the non-winos as well. There was something for everyone.
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.

The soft, supple, velvety-textured 2005 Syrah reveals notes of blackberries, bacon fat, camphor, pepper, and black olives. This fruit forward beauty is ideal for drinking over the next 7-8 years. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Syrah wine from California in USA. 2005 Pride Mountain Vineyards Syrah 750ml
Good medium ruby. Wild aromas of roasted black raspberry, pepper, bacon fat and nutty oak. Silky and fine-grained, with a gamey syrah character that's currently overshadowed by an impression of strong acidity. Very intensely flavored and firm but a b... Stephen Tanzer. A Syrah wine from California in USA. 2004 Pride Mountain Vineyards Syrah 750ml
Mildly gamy, a touch smoky and simply brimming with sweet, caramelized, oaky spice, Pride Mountain's latest Syrah goes for complexity and depth while keeping overt fruitiness fairly quiet. It is full and fleshy in feel without the heaviness that some... Connoisseur's Guide. A Syrah wine from California in USA. 2003 Pride Mountain Vineyards Syrah 750ml
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
($45; these vines on quartz gravel yielded less than a ton of fruit per acre) Opaque black ruby. Deep, meaty aromas of roasted black raspberry, mocha and milk chocolate. Lush, sweet and stuffed with fruit; flavors of wild dark berries, dark chocolate... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Syrah wine from California in USA. 2001 Pride Mountain Vineyards Syrah 750ml
The nose swirls with concentrated aromas of Bing cherry, rose petal, creosote, sandalwood, butcher block and cardamom.Exotic aromas of rose oil and Indian spice enliven a core of pure plum and berry fruit. The palate is silky and fine, with layers of pretty red fruit balanced by the concentration and size typical of our mountain wines. Always a most versatile wine, this Syrah is a perfect match for an exotic menu featuring savory wild mushrooms or roasted dishes.
