Pride Mountain Vineyards Sangiovese Sonoma County 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Our most limited production wine again lives up to its reputation as a rare example of California Sangiovese that is luscious rather than lean. The four rows of vines planted in our Sonoma County Mountain Top and Callie’s Vineyard blocks produce grapes ripened to a dark ruby color by plenty of sun exposure and merciless crop thinning. By blending in no more than 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, we add texture without overpowering our Sangiovese’s characteristic flavor profile. Rum raisin, truffle and creosote notes are followed by bright raspberry and cherry, resulting in a wine that is continually evolving in the glass. The 500 ml bottles are filled, corked and labeled entirely by hand to create a wine that is a unique and well-kept secret.

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
