    November 28, 2014 - Day after Thanksgiving wine. Hearty merlot. Dusty blue fruits and fine tannin.

    November 9, 2014 - The complete opposite of my March note. Pop and pour though a Vinturi and it was excellent. Tannins well integrated; nice long finish. A surprising hint of vanilla. Overall, very tasty. Last bottle. Wish I had more.

    August 9, 2014 - A terrific merlot from Pride. The Pride merlots are terrific and never disappoint! It paired well with salmon!!
