Pride Mountain Vineyards 2004 Merlot Napa-Sonoma

Tasting notes: A masterpiece of ripe fruit—a roiling medley of dark mountain berries—through which glide sweet currents of smoky oak. Worth knowing: Pride Mountain Vineyards’ more than 200 acres sit at an elevation of 2,100 feet above the valley floor. The Pride family acquired its first 45 acres of what was known as Summit Ranch in 1989 and have expanded its vineyards since, while building a portfolio of wines that have become necessary components of any serious California collection. Their winemaker, Robert Foley, is among Napa’s best.
