93pts Vinous

The 2018 Merlot is another very pretty wine in this part of the Pride range. Plump and juicy, with mid-weight structure, the 2018 is gorgeous right out of the gate. Succulent black cherry, plum, mocha, licorice and spice all flesh out effortlessly, with bright acids that keep the flavors lively. The restrained style is so appealing.

92pts Jeb Dunnuck

Merlot excelled in 2018, and Pride's 2018 Merlot offers a beautiful, medium to full-bodied, plump, rounded style that's a joy to drink. Giving up lots of redcurrants, black cherries, tobacco leaf, earth, and chocolate, it has nicely integrated tannins and no hard edges. It's a gem to enjoy over the coming 7-8 years, if not upwards of a decade or more.

The 2018 Pride Mountain Vineyards Merlot brings richness to the table. This wine offers loads of black fruit in its aromas and flavors. Pair it with a grilled, juicy ribeye. (Tasted: June 22, 2021, San Francisco, CA)


Winemaker Notes

The incredible quality of the 2018 vintage is on full display in our Estate Merlot. Sensationally dense with ripe plum, boysenberry, and blackberry flavors that leap out of the glass, the smooth, rich fruit is complemented by milk chocolate, fresh tobacco, sandalwood, black licorice, violet, and mocha.
