April 16, 2017 - What a pleasant surprise. Enjoyed with our Easter Dinner of brisket/pot roast. Still fruity, balanced. No decanting necessary. Opened a 2008 Viader, and a 2004 Paloma Syrah for this dinner. The Pride was the house favorite. Just a fantastic, easy to enjoy bottle of wine! (The Paloma Syrah was my favorite, because it was still a contender.). The Viader was a great bottle as well. No complaints, but on this evening the Pride Merlot was voted #1.)

December 11, 2016 - Nice. Really quite nice. I wish it wasn't the last one in our cellar, although if we had any more, I would be drinking it soon.
