    June 14, 2017 - A bit thin, probably mostly because of the vintage, but nevertheless disappointing, especially since Pride made its name on Merlot

    June 3, 2017 - Had it at a banquet, where I snuck it into my table. No formal notes taken, but I liked it much better than my previous bottle from 2 years ago.

    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 28, 2016 - Drink it if you got it! Huge black fruits and robust cedar. Well balanced and all around very enjoyable. Not sure what the future holds but its great right now!!!
