2005 Pride Mountain Napa-Sonoma Counties Merlot

SKU #1054119 93 points Wine Spectator

 Rich and concentrated, with bold aromas of plum, currant and mocha leading to complex, layered blackberry, licorice and spice flavors that finish with a flourish of ripe, minerally tannins. (JL)  (11/2007)

91 points Connoisseurs Guide

 Wonderfully rich and well-concentrated aromas of sweet oak and optimally ripened cherries make for a stellar start here, and the wine more than lives up to its promise with powerful, keenly proportioned flavors brimming with precise varietal fruit.

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Good full red. Redcurrant, tobacco, melted chocolate, mint and spicy oak on the nose. Sweet and fresh, with youthfully reticent flavors of plum, mocha and sweet herbs. Finishes with big, dusty but ultimately fine tannins. Plenty of stuffing here but in need of a couple years of additional bottle aging. (ST)  (6/2008)
