2001 Pride Mountain Sonoma County Syrah (torn label)

SKU #1460862 93 points Wine Spectator

 Jet black, ultrarich and polished, with detailed layers of currant, blackberry, raspberry jam, exotic spices and new leather scents-it's a mouthful of Syrah any way you cut it. Finishes with a burst of flavor and hints of nutmeg and cedar.  (12/2003)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 There are seven barrels (175 cases) of the 2001 Syrah. Inky/purple, with a smoky richness of blackberry jam intermixed with hints of creosote and truffles, this is a big, thick, opulent Syrah fruit bomb that should drink well for 10-12 years, possibly longer. (RP)  (12/2003)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Opaque black ruby. Deep, meaty aromas of roasted black raspberry, mocha and milk chocolate. Lush, sweet and stuffed with fruit; flavors of wild dark berries, dark chocolate, coffee, mocha and meat. Has just enough acidity to maintain its shape. In a decidedly late-harvest style, with huge, broad, thoroughly ripe tannins arriving late, and a lingering suggestion of M&Ms. This impressively fat, take-no-prisoners syrah will never be mistaken for an example from the Northern Rhone, but there's distinctive site character here. The vineyard was not watered between fruit set and veraison to ensure smaller berry size. (ST)  (5/2003)

K&L Notes

The cult following for Pride Mountain has been in full force for years now. Situated high up at the top of Spring Mountain, the winery straddles the Sonoma/Napa county line and commands a spectacular view of Mount St Helena. The property was a winery well over 100 years ago, and now produces some of the more sought after wines in California. The reviewers tend to agree with the collectors, as the wines regularly achieve fantastic scores in numerous respected publications
