Pride Mountain Vineyards Merlot 2009 (750ML)
92 WS 90 IWC
Knockout nose of sweet dark cherry, violets, poppy seed cake and the subtle hint of mahogany chest. Silky and round in the mouth. An elegant slow-building attack that yields to gorgeous intense cherry and plum flavors with hints of camphor and resiny underbrush. The tannins are ultra refined with no noticeable chalky grip, but with enough time in the mouth, a pleasing firmness emerges. Concentrated flavors with a lingering persistent finish and no hint of alcohol whatsoever at any point in this wine experience. Wine Makers Notes "(with 9% cabernet sauvignon, 2.5% petit verdot and 0.5% cabernet franc): Good bright medium-deep red. Sexy, expressive aromas of redcurrant, red plum, chocolate and nutty oak. Sweet and pliant in the mouth, with enticing flavors of red berries, cocoa powder and spices. Finishes with a fine dusting of tannins and lovely lingering perfume. According to winemaker Sally Jackson, the merlot in 2009 had less weight and structure than usual, but this wine is a charmer...90" IWC 06/12 "A supple and fleshy red, with zesty aromas of black cherry, mocha and spice that lead to rich flavors of red currant, toast and spice. Tannins are ripe and well-structured...92" WS 11/12
