Winemaker's Notes

Cabernet Sauvignon adds complexity and preserves the seductive texture of the mountain-grown Sangiovese, while a splash of Petit Verdot lengthens the finish. The remarkably dark ruby-red color betrays the mountain origins of this wine, while bright wild berry aromas interplay with exotic spice and explode across the entire palate. Amazingly mouth-filling and superbly rich on the mid-palate, the berry flavors seem to dance and then linger in an unbelievably lengthy finish. Beautifully balanced, the fresh fruit-packed personality of this Super-Tuscan blend marks this as a classic Bob Foley bring-your-toothbrush wine.

Critical Acclaim

"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 problem is, they only make two barrels (50 cases), so I will keep my notes brief. The greatest northern California Sangiovese, the 2001 Sangiovese blows away its competition. Strawberry jam, tobacco leaf, plum, and fig characteristics skip and hop to the beat of a large orchestra in this bottle that is available only in 500ml formats. Drink this knock-out 2001 over the next 5-7 years. It will make anyone believe that Sangiovese as well as Merlot are not always the great red wine rip offs of California."

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...

Learn About Sangiovese

Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs. For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...
