Much lighter and sweeter than what I would expect from a Zinfandel. The ladies liked it because it was so light

paired well with Ribs, along with baked beans and potato salad for Labor Day. Goes well with the spicy barbecue sauce and spicy beans.

This is a nice effort for an Arizona winery. I am continually surprised when I drink these Arizona wines. I know I like them when I taste at the winery but they are better than I expect when I actually drink them at home. This was a well balanced and enjoyable wine. Nothing too complex but quite pleasing non the less. Obviously the price point is a bit high compared to other wines in this price range but I certainly want to support the Arizona wine industry.

Crisp and refreshing and completely opposite of what you would expect from a riesling. We drank this with a Pesto Chicken Pasta with sun dried tomatoes, mushrooms and asparagus and it paired nicely. I good summer wine to enjoy with a light meal.

Decanted for an hour before pouring with a Filet, grilled onions and Mushrooms and fingerling mashed potatoes. Silky smooth with a full body and a long finish. This was the perfect wine for this meal!

It was a bit flat upon opening. Opened up a bit after an hour or so. Disappointed in this one compared to the reviews. This bottle may not have aged as well as most.

- Garnet color with medium forming legs and aromas of blackberry, strawberry, licorice anise and rose. It's in total harmony and has flavours of licorice anise, cut green grass, tobacco and hazelnut with a medium/full body. Silky texture with a long finish - Drank with Sarah with perfectly cooked Lamb chops, mushrooms, salad and caramelized brussel sprouts. Amazing meal with an amazing wine!

Not the crisp fresh bite I am used to in this variety. More subtle and soft with a long finish. A nice change but not one I would drink everyday.

I am not a big white drinker but this could change my mind. Although certainly not big, it was complex and long lasting. Pretty special.

A very nice merlot. Full bodied with lots of fruit and subtle tannins with a silky finish. Excellent value with some time left on it. Added to my wish list

A clean crisp Chardonnay that was excellent after a hike to Secret Falls in Kauai. Nice with cheese and crackers after a dip in the natural pool.

Fruit bomb on thee front. Lacks the complexity and staying power of a truly great red but I must say that I do really enjoy this wine!

Nice color, bouquet is lacking the rich cab aromas and the taste follows suit. More like a medium merlot than a cab. Not a bad effort for the price.

Yummie. This was a follow up to a '87 Spring Mtn cab so it was a tough act to follow.

I opened this one because I was nervous about the age. If you are still holding this, let not your heart be troubled, this still has some time left on it! I would agree with Phin's tasting notes below. We Let this breathe for about an hour and vinturied into a decanter. Silky smooth with the tannins having mellowed nicely. I would buy more of this!

Disappointed compared to other bottles of Pride that I have tasted. There are better wines for the price, although this opened up nicely after an hour or so. Perhaps I would have a different opinion if decanted properly.

A bit rough around the edges. Tannins are a little over bearing, without a soft finish. This was a $30 restaurant purchase so I wasn't unhappy with the bottle but I wouldn't pay $20 retail.
