This mountain-grown "super-Tuscan" is more than a mouthful, with wild berries, rich, ripe plums, hints of vanilla and leather and an amazing mid-palate that continues to evolve with incredible clarity and a luxurious finish.

Wine AdvocatePride Mountain consistently does a good job with Sangiovese, and the 2005 offers aromas of saddle leather, underbrush, sweet cherries, and a notion of unsmoked cigar tobacco. Drink it over the next several years.

Wine EnthusiastPride continues to struggle with this variety, as does everyone else in California who tries their hand at it. The '05 is semisweet and simple, with candied cherry-blackberry flavors that finish more like a dessert wine than a dry table wine.
