Deep purple almost black color. Unusually full bodied for a Merlot. Gobs of chocolate and black cherry. Nice long finish to it. Overall a extremely well structured and balanced wine. Just what I would expect from Pride Mountain.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
