Pride Mountain Vineyards Sangiovese Sonoma County 1997

Winemaker's Notes:

Surprise, surprise, surprise! Our first bottling of Sangiovese, only one barrel of this varietal was produced from Row 20 of our lower Mountain Top block, the sum total of Sangiovese vines currently planted at Pride. If you previously associated this variety with lighter-style red wines, buckle up! Inky red in color, the aromas suggest blueberry and port. Sweet and mouthfilling on the palate, chewy tannins last for about a half-hour in the finish. If it’s spaghetti, it better be red sauce! Then again, you might not need any food with this one, but don’t forget to brush! We have bottled this extremely limited offering in a striking 500 ml package.

People immediately understand why the winery estate was previously named "Summit Ranch." The twisting twenty-minute drive west from St. Helena, or east from Santa Rosa, rewards visitors with a stunning view of rugged Mount St. Helena to the northeast and verdant vineyards rising skyward in all directions. Pride Mountain Vineyards is a 235-acre estate with a wooden-beamed, modest-sized winery that blends smoothly into its mountainous surroundings and California heritage. The charming and unpretentious tasting room offers guests the opportunity to sample the latest vintages while chatting with the gracious and knowledgeable staff. County regulations require that visitors hold a prior appointment. Read less
