Pride Mountain Vineyards Chardonnay 2020 / 750 ml.

Item#: 98432

RP9292 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 29th Oct 2021
The 2020 Chardonnay slowly unfurls to reveal notes of key lime pie, yuzu and lemongrass, plus minerally suggestions of wet pebbles, chalk dust and brine. The medium to full-bodied palate delivers exhilarating tension and a zippy backbone, breaking through to fantastic citrusy intensity and a long chalky finish. 1,945 cases were made.

The 2020 Chardonnay is bright and floral, with lovely energy and tons of character Lemon peel, white flowers and white pepper give the 2020 a brilliant upper register. Partially blocked malolactic fermentation keeps the flavors vibrant. Most of this fruit is from a site in Carneros. (Antonio Galloni)

There are two Chardonnays from this estate. Starting with the 2020 Chardonnay, it reveals a light gold hue as well as attractive notes of honeyed citrus and subtle tropical fruits, as well as a touch of brioche and spice. Nicely textured, medium-bodied, and balanced, it’s well done and will keep for 2–4 years. (Jeb Dunnuck)

Where It's From

Region / California

View more wines from California

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.

The 2021 Merlot is packed with dark blue/purplish fruit, new leather, spice, tobacco, mocha and licorice. Juicy and enveloping, with terrific energy, the Merlot is absolutely delicious. The brighter style here is so compelling. Plush contours wrap it all together. (Antonio Galloni)
JD9292 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 12/26/2023
Lots of red plums, darker chocolate, and tobacco notes emerge from the 2021 Merlot, a beautifully textured, medium-bodied Pomerol look-alike that has fine tannins, notable purity, and a great finish. It’s beautifully done and an utterly delicious, satisfying Merlot to drink over the coming decade. (Jeb Dunnuck)

The 2019 Merlot is very pretty in this vintage. Floral and spice notes give the Merlot a striking aromatic upper register that is both distinctive and alluring. Sweet red cherry, cinnamon and rose petal all build nicely in the glass. Best of all, the Pride Merlot will drink well right out of the gate. (Antonio Galloni)

The classic 2019 Merlot comes 70% from Napa County and 30% from Sonoma County. It offers more black cherry and darker fruits as well as Bordeaux-like notes of cedarwood, damp earth, and spice. Medium-bodied on the palate, nicely balanced, and textured, it has a firmer edge that’s going to soften with a year or two of bottle age. It should drink nicely through 2029. (Jeb Dunnuck)

Superrich and ripe-tasting, this wine practically oozes blackberry and blueberry syrup on every sip, coating the palate with richness that’s emphasized by a very full body and appropriately grippy tannins. Best through 2033. (Jim Gordon)

The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is a classic Pride wire. Effusive aromatics meld into a core of dark blue/purplish fruit. Medium in body, but with terrific depth, 2019 has a lot going on. This is an especially refined vintage for the Cabernet Sauvignon. All the elements are so nicely balanced. Cedar, tobacco, licorice and dried herbs linger. (Antonio Galloni)
JD9191 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 2/16/2023
I loved the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon, a classic, impeccably made Cabernet offering plenty of darker blue, plummy fruits, some classic Cabernet herbal and cedary nuances, medium body, soft tannins, and a great finish. Drink bottles any time over the coming 10–12 years. (Jeb Dunnuck)

The 2018 Syrah impresses for its precision and nuance. There is plenty of the textural richness readers have come to expect from Pride, but that is balanced by striking aromatic definition and presence. Floral accents, dried herbs, mint, blood orange and sage add brightness to a core of red/purplish berry fruit. Give the tannins a year or so to soften.
RP9191 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 5th Nov 2020
Coming entirely from Sonoma County, the 2018 Syrah is a blend of 95% Syrah, 3% Viognier and 2% Grenache. Medium garnet-purple colored, it bursts from the glass with bold notes of black cherries, fresh black plums and ripe blackberries plus hints of tar, licorice, bouquet garni and fertile loam. A gentle black pepper character contributes to the crunchy black fruits on the medium to full-bodied palate, framed by rounded tannins and bold freshness, finishing spicy. 1,818 cases were made.
JD9191 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 1/27/2021
The 2018 Syrah shows the cooler nature of the vintage, with bright, juicy, yet savory notes of red and darker berry fruits intermixed with plenty of peppery herbs and floral notes. These carry to a medium-bodied, elegant Syrah with nicely integrated acidity, ripe tannins, and a clean, balanced style that’s going to evolve for 7–8 years. (Jeb Dunnuck)
