Pride Mountain Vineyards Vintner Select Cuvee Merlot 2002
|Brand||Pride Mountain Vineyards|
Wine AdvocateRatcheting up the level of concentration, complexity, and persistence in the mouth is the 2002 Merlot Vintner's Select (400 cases). An opulent, heady wine that reveals gorgeously melted toffee notes intermixed with blackberry and cherry liqueur, a hint of smoke, underbrush, and fabulous power and richness, this is extraordinarily pure, dense wine that is about as good as Merlot can be in California. Drink it over the next decade.
