Winemaker Notes

The Vintner Select Merlot swirls with heady aromas of super-ripe cherry, raspberry and blackberry fruit notes. On the palate, the wine is rounder than round, full of luscious fruit, and finishes with the big, powerful structure of a mountain wine. As in years past, the wine is 100% clone 3 merlot, and is sourced from the same vines that contribute the Merlot component to the Reserve Claret.

Blend: 100% Merlot

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Pride's 2009 Merlot Vintner's Select is gorgeous and silky from the very first taste. Sweet red cherries, licorice, mint, cinnamon and dried flowers are all woven together in this beautifully balanced wine. The 2009 has lovely mid-palate pliancy to match its radiant, generous personality. I tasted the 2009 Merlot after all the Pride Cabernets and it more than held its own. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
A supple and fleshy red, with zesty aromas of black cherry, mocha and spice that lead to rich flavors of red currant, toast and spice. Tannins are ripe and well-structured.

Wine Enthusiast
This 100% Merlot is fruit forward in cherry pie and chocolate flavors, it's hard to resist drinking it now. But it's also quite tannic. Cellar Selection.
