(From 2011 Vintage) Heady aromas of nectarine, apricot, honeysuckle and star fruit seduce the nose, while on the mouth, an explosion of luscious fruit evolves into a rich mid-palate and a finish that lingers without any trace of astringency. Thanks to a long ripening season, the wine maintains a bright natural acidity which compliments its supple texture. A balanced and charming wine, our 2009 Viognier is poised to delight!
(From 2013 Vintage) Super-concentrated nose of blackberry, kirsch, moist tobacco, subtle incense and sandalwood really light up the senses. Classic Pride Mountain flavors of dark ripe berries, a range of baking spice nuances, cedar and mocha.

Wine & Spirits(From 2007 Vintage) Good full, bright ruby. Precise aromas of blackberry, minerals, menthol, cedar and slate. Supple and suave, with a slightly high-toned quality to the dark berry and bitter chocolate flavors. A real crushed-berry bomb, with good acid cut and supple broad tannins. Steve Pride noted that this wine was more aggressive in the mid-rsquo;90s; the winery introduced a gentler destemmer with vintage 2008 and is now pressing the fruit more gently. Therersquo;s now less in the way of oak tannins in the finished wines, he added.
