2006 Pride Mountain Sonoma County Syrah
Dense, detailed and concentrated, this is tight, focused and full-bodied, with an enticing mix of mineral, wild cherry and black cherry fruit, picking up lots of spice, pepper and nutmeg scents that provide depth and length. (JL)
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Two limited production offerings include the 2006 Syrah, a 600-case red offering floral and blackberry scents, medium to full body, sweet tannin, and a long, lush mouthfeel. (RP)
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Good medium ruby. Superripe aromas of roasted raspberry, blueberry and smoked meat. Juicy but youthfully subdued in the mouth, with flavors of dark raspberry, smoked meat, chocolate and celery seed...
Pride Mountain has garned itself a cult following over recent years. Situated high up at the top of Spring Mountain, the winery straddles the Sonoma/Napa county line and commands a spectacular view of Mount St Helena. The property was a winery well over 100 years ago, and now produces some of the more sought after wines in California.
