Winemaker's Notes:

"As everyone in California knows, I have little respect for most California Sangiovese. However, there are exceptions, and Pride Mountain's is one of them . . . The greatest northern California Sangiovese, the 2001 blows away its competition," said Robert Parker in the notes accompanying his 94 point score of our 2001 Sangiovese in the December 2003 issue of The Wine Advocate. Here's the 2002 vintage, offering a sneak preview of what this outstanding vintage has in store.

About Pride Mountain Vineyards:

Pride Mountain Vineyards is situated on the Summit Ranch, one of Napa Valley's oldest grape producers atop Spring Mountain. With over 120 years of viticulture documented there, Jim and Carolyn Pride purchased Summit Ranch and their first vintage premiered in 1991. Today, Pride Mountain Vineyards produces Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay, Viognier and limited bottlings of Syrah and Sangiovese.
