Pedroncelli Winery

 


    The Pedroncelli family has been one of the pillars of the Dry Creek Valley since the beginning of the twentieth century. By the early 1930s, at the end of prohibition, the Pedroncelli winery was one of only four producing wineries left. Since then, the family has been one of the most traditional advocates of the Zinfandel grape from the Dry Creek Valley.
     The wines produced are made in a traditional style, with a limited use of new oak. The winemaker is looking for good fruit, soft tanins, but no over-ripe flavors. I definitely appreciate the reasonable prices; the Zinfandel "Mother Clones" and the Pinot Noir constitute good values.



  Wines Offered: The winery offers some interesting Zinfandels and port at good prices.

  Marc's selection:
  •    Zinfandel, Mother Clone: This Zinfandel shows a cherry hue with an medium-intense nose of red berries, spices, and cacao. It is medium-full bodied with a balanced acidity and a medium-length finish.
