Pride 'Reserve Claret' Napa Valley 2005
Formerly known as ‘Summit Ranch,’ Pride Mountain Vineyards comprises 95 hectares across both Napa and Sonoma counties, ideally situated at high altitudes along the crest of the Mayacamas. The 2005 ‘Reserve Claret’ is Merlot dominant (⅔), rounded out with ⅓ of the estate’s Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. Jammy fruit flavors of plum and black cherry dominate; powerful and bold, the wine comes from a near perfect vintage. Only 495 cases produced.

The sun in the American wine solar system, but at the same time a wine 'nation' in its own right, California is like the popular kid in high school that was good at everything and good-looking, too.
