Rated 90 Points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate; eRobertParker.com, #215 October, 2014

"The outstanding 2012 Merlot is composed of 92% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 18 months in 40% new French oak. There are 5,350 cases. It exhibits a classic Merlot bouquet of coffee beans, white chocolate, mocha, black cherries and plums. This lush, heady, sexy, medium to full-bodied Merlot can be consumed over the next 7-8 years. 

The current releases of Pride Mountain Vineyards have their regions of origin noted as Napa/Sonoma since their vineyards sit on both sides of the two counties. I tasted with Pride on August 24, which was the Sunday morning when the 6.0-force earthquake hit Napa. Needless to say, we were all shaken, but generally not stirred. Most of the current releases, especially the big reds, are from the 2011 vintage, and Pride Mountain produced some of the finest wines of that excessively maligned year. The current releases of Pride’s big, red wines are 2011s. Stephen Pride told me that their vineyards were not affected by the late October rains, but it was the coldest vintage in their history."
