Pride Mountain Vineyards Sangiovese Sonoma County 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

This mountain-grown “super-Tuscan” is more than a mouthful, with wild berries, rich, ripe plums, hints of vanilla and leather and an amazing mid-palate that continues to evolve with incredible clarity and a luxurious finish. Always very limited in production, the Sangiovese took a particularly hard hit in 2004, when wet spring conditions resulted in lower yields. If this wine is in your offering, please don’t be offended that your allocation has dropped so dramatically – that’s all there is!

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

The beautiful 2004 Sangiovese offers classic strawberry, earth, and leathery aromas, medium body, fine texture, a layered mouthfeel, and surprising depth. It is best consumed during its first 4-5 year... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Sangiovese wine from California in USA. 2004 Pride Mountain Vineyards Sangiovese 500ml
