Pride Mountain Vineyards Reserve Claret, California, USA 2004

 

[RP 95]

[WE 95]

 

Power-packed monster, very ripe black cherry and cassis, tar and camphor...a broad flood of texture across the palate, rich ripe and huge middle, chocolate-cherry-coffee flavors, firm chewy youthful tannins in the finish, balanced with ample acidity.

 

A blend of 89% Sonoma and 11% Napa fruit, the 2004 Reserve Claret is composed of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon. More coffee, toffee and caramelized red and black fruit aromas jump from the glass of this dense plum/purple-colored wine. It reveals a slightly lighter edge than the Cabernet Sauvignon. Medium to full-bodied with beautiful fruit, it is more compact than the Cabernet, but is also a great example of Northern California viticulture. (RP)

  • Details

    Our goal is to make intensely flavored wines that reflect and honor our unique growing situation at 2100’ elevation.  Our vineyards mainly face south and are above the fog layer which results in vines bathed in sunshine from morning to evening throughout the growing season.  Our morning low temperatures are much higher than in the surrounding valleys while our afternoon high temperatures are much lower.  Due to this, our vines are physiologically active for most of each 24-hour period during the ripening season even if the grapes do not ripen faster than in the valleys due to our cooler afternoon temperatures.  These distinct growing conditions result in big red wines that are on the black-fruit side of the ripeness spectrum but that nonetheless are loaded with varietal character and a nice amount of acidity on the finish.  The viognier and chardonnay have mid-palate richness due to all of our sunshine but are able to maintain acidity and excitement on the finish.  Our whites are distinguished by having a strong flavor intensity while simultaneously remaining fresh and lively in the mouth.
