About Pride Mountain Vineyards
Nestled above the Spring Mountain fog, on the Napa-Sonoma county line, Pride Mountain Vineyard sits on a former 340-acre agricultural Summit Ranch. In 1989, when Jim and Carolyn Pride purchased the spread they planned on growing grapes to sell, but soon caught the bug and built a winery.

($37; from Carneros fruit-the only wine made from non-estate vines) Bright medium yellow. Aromatic nose combines lemon drop, nectarine, honey and flowers. Dense, juicy and quite dry, with a slight hard edge to the stone fruit flavors. Not a particularly fleshy or sweet style; in fact this is a bit austere today. Just 30% of this wine went through malolactic fermentation. Winemaker Sally Johnson vinified with Burgundy yeasts in 2007, which she says "brought out the estery aromas."
