1993 Pride Mountain Vineyards Reserve Claret - 1st Vintage!
Only 102 Cases Produced!
Pride Mountain Vineyards was founded in 1990 by Jim and Carolyn Pride and since 2004 has been owned by their children Suzanne Pride Bryan and Steve Pride. From 2004, the winery has been run and managed by Steve Pride, CEO and Director of Winegrowing. Moreover, these wines catapult Pride Mountain into the top echelon of California's quality wineries.

Overall, their winemaking practices are traditional, even as they continue to evolve, and are designed to let the terroir signatures of the grapes be present in the finished wines.  The Bordeaux varieties of red grapes are 100% destemmed and fermented over a two-week period in stainless steel before being racked to 50% neutral and 50% new French barrels where they age for roughly 18 months with racking every 4 months.  An exception is the syrah that is only partially destemmed and is aged in 100% neutral barrels.

Robert Parker

Robert Parker 93 RP - Pride Mountain's first Reserve wine the 1993 Reserve Claret 102 cases produced is a blend of essentially 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Merlot with tiny dollops of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. An awesome wine it exhibits an opaque plum/purple color as well as a sweet rich nose of minerals smoke spice and jammy black currants and plum. Deep full-bodied and chewy yet strikingly well-defined this is a fabulous effort that should drink well for 15-20 years. This Spring Mountain winery continues to push the envelope of quality as evidenced by the current releases - the finest wines they have yet produced. Moreover these wines catapult Pride Mountain into the top echelon of California's quality wineries.
