Pride Mountain Vineyards Sangiovese Sonoma County 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

“As everyone in California knows, I have little respect for most California Sangiovese. However, there are exceptions, and Pride Mountain’s is one of them . . .

Here’s the 2002 vintage, offering a sneak preview of what this outstanding vintage has in store.

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

...Dried red fruits and dried rose on the nose, with complicating notes of nuts and baking spices; in a distinctly Tuscan style. Superripe and sweet, but with lively acids giving shape to the redcurrant, plum and nut flavors. At once dense and fresh;... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Sangiovese wine from California in USA. 2002 Pride Mountain Vineyards Sangiovese 500ml
