Pedroncelli Zinfandel Mother Clone Dry Creek Valley 2020Size: 0
Sonoma County, California - Concentrated flavors of blackberry, black pepper and dark chocolate are framed by notes of smoky oak, cinnamon and vanilla. Well integrated flavors with smooth tannins and bright acidity are a hallmark of Pedroncelli's style.
Pedroncelli’s historic Zinfandel vineyards are located on the hillsides surrounding the winery. They are located on the ranch originally purchased by John Pedroncelli Sr. in 1927 and planted to Zinfandel since 1904. The vines are head-pruned and hand-picked, a second generation vineyard cloned from the original “Mother” vines. The individual blocks were replanted in the early 1980s. The fruit from three generations of vineyards are combined in this bottling. We also source from Bushnell, Giovannoni and Faloni, all longtime Zinfandel vineyards and sources. AGING: 12 months in American Oak, 30% new oak, ALCOHOL: 15.5%
