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.

($125) Bright medium ruby-red. More reticent on the nose than the Claret but quite pure, offering notes of currant, tobacco leaf, licorice and eucalyptus. Then sweet, lush and surprisingly ripe in the mouth, with a dominant flavor of dark raspberry; not as complex today as the Claret but large-scaled, serious and impressively deep. Finishes with substantial tongue-dusting tannins and subtle lingering sweetness. I'd give this vin de garde at least five years in the cellar.
