Really nice balanced acidity. Still showing great rich fruit and firm hillside tannins.

Great wine. Has smoothed out with time. Dark fruit, good acid, silky tannin. It's at its prime now. I think it's got 6 more months before it declines.

Wow. Non-believers of 2011 be damned. Lights out wine. Tough and gritty. Made awe and reflect on the hard work it took to make such a stellar wine that year. Another winner from Pride. Not surprised considering the pedigree.

Blackberry, black cherry, licorice, eucalyptus, raspberry, mossy earth, oak and hints of mint. Great structure and moderate tannins.

@pridewines @pridemtnsally much fresher than expectations. very grippy tannins still exist almost making the wine off balance. will be interesting to try another one in 5yrs #mountainwine #1997vintage

Really fantastic with some air. Great concentration of dark berry fruit without being overdone. Deep floral too. Lots of energy! One of the best on release I can remember.
