Pride Mountain Vineyards was founded in 1990 by Jim and Carolyn Pride. Today, the winery is owned by the second generation of the Pride family. Pride Mountain Vineyards is recognized as one of the “World’s Greatest Wine Estates” by Robert Parker, Jr., joining just 22 other California wineries for this distinction.
Grapes: 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot, 5% Merlot
Pairing Suggestions: Roasted game, duck, burgers, strong cheeses.
Tasting Notes: Black currant, Morello cherry, and just-ripe black mission fig dance with aromas of sage brush, nag champa incense, candied violets, star anise, and black truffle. The palate is dense and compact with incredible structure. The generous fruit of the nose gives way to power and intensity with aromas of the forest, while layers of complex black and red fruit, sandalwood, bay, and graphite linger with velvety tannins on the long and dynamic finish.
