Dark rubi robe, nose of blackcurrant, tobacco and flowers. Very light, elegant and balanced in the mouth with very polished tannins. You want more. Gets you thirsty. And goes so well with food. This is an excellent wine. — 12 days ago
2017 Wine Spectator #1 wine of the year
45 min decant(some fine/cloudy sediment) A remarkable dark crimson color. On the nose: mellow notes of dark cherry/raspberry, graphite, smokey vanilla, floral. Taste: smooth, creamy wine with plum, bitter chocolate, cedar, black pepper, oak, and a vanilla tar medium plus dry finish. YUM! I like it. — a month ago

Friday night I opened the 2019 Pride Mountain Vineyards 70% Napa County/30% Sonoma County Merlot. From St. Helena, California.
On the nose there is nlack cherry, plum, black raspberry, black currant, oak, chocolate, herbaceous notes and dark earth.
On the palate there is vlack cherry, black raspberry, plum sauce, black currant, spice, oak, chocolate, tobacco, tar black pepper and dark rich earth.
This ia a full bodied wine with medium + to high acidity and medium + mouthcoating crunchy tannins that leaves you with a long dark fruit woody finish. A new week is upon us and we can look ahead with hope and positivity. Let us all stay healthy and safe to a great week ahead. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 13 days ago
