Pride Mountain Merlot 2017

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

Grapes: 94% Merlot,  4%. Cabernet Sauvignon

Pairing Suggestions: Grilled meats, lamb, strongly flavored pastas.

Tasting Notes:  Ripe plum, black cherry, wild strawberry, and purple flowers that carry through to the rich palate, complemented by milk chocolate, star anise, and pipe tobacco. The wine is all about balanced intensity, as the voluptuous fruit meets mountain minerality and velvety tannins with bright acidity lifting and integrating all the flavors. Fruit and spice mingle with subtle oak notes of cocoa nibs, cinnamon, and vanilla on the long and lingering finish.

ABV: 14.4%
