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.
94 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 1998
Opaque black-ruby. Tangy cassis and boysenberry fruit on the nose, with complicating notes of leather, curry powder, cocoa, minerals and shoe polish. Pungent, juicy, dark berry fruit of almost painful intensity and concentration; sharply focused and penetrating. Again, I sense a rock-solid mineral spine underneath the sweet fruit. Huge tannins are more than supported by powerful fruit extract. Really explodes and reverberates on the finish. A real fruit bomb.
