Reserve Claret 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

92 points Stephen Tanzer (International Wine Cellar): (roughly two-thirds merlot and one-third cabernet sauvignon, with a touch of petit verdot) Bright, full ruby. Sweetly oaky aromas of cassis, violet, bitter chocolate and lead pencil. Sweet, suave and deep, with mouthfilling, deeply oaky dark berry and lead pencil flavors nicely framed by juicy acidity. Finishes with impressively fine tannins for the vintage, and strong fruit flavors of blackberry and currant. This is the brother of winemaker Bob Foley's eponymously labeled blend; at present, this is the more seductive wine, while Foley's shows a firmer tannic structure. (May/Jun 2003)

Offers up-front jazzy, spicy oak and fills in with ripe currant, spice and blackberry fruit, with hints of sage and cedar. Well-balanced, rich and concentrated, with firm yet supple tannins... Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 2000 Pride Mountain Vineyards Reserve Claret 750ml
