1997 Pride Mountain Napa Valley Merlot

SKU #310335 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 1997 Merlot might be called liquified Viagra. An incredibly sexy nose of smoke, black fruits, cappuccino, and toasty wood is followed by an expansive, terrifically concentrated wine with a sumptuous texture, no hard edges, beautifully integrated acidity and tannin, and a long, 35 second finish. According to the back label, about 5% Cabernet Sauvignon was added in the blend of this stunningly aromatic, multi-dimensional wine. It should drink well for 12-15 years. This is a spectacular wine that must be tasted to be believed. (RP)  (8/1999)

92 points Wine Spectator

 Wonderful ripe fruit is the hallmark of this lovely California Merlot, which displays rich and complex cherry, currant, anise, cedar and spice flavors. Gains in depth and nuance through the finish, where it keeps pumping out the flavors. *Top 100 Wines of 1999* (JL)  (9/1999)

K&L Notes

Big flashy style merlot with lots of flashy new oak and a shot of cabernet to beef it up. Great for drinking now or you can hold in your cellar for at least three winters. Another great wine from Pride Mountain winemaker Tom Foley.
