Wine Review: This opaque and midnight blue colored Zinfandel from Pedroncelli opens with a heady blackberry puree, black cherry and vanilla oak bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a bit rustic. It features a cedar and red plum blend with notes mineral, prune and tobacco. We also detected some hints of chocolate and blackberry mixed in as well. The finish is pleasantly dry and its mild tannins are nicely prolonged. I would have this Zin a hearty campfire beef stew or short ribs. Enjoy – Ken, Stuart and Karen

Winemaker Notes: Our Mother Clone is a classic Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel with aromas of black plum with a touch spice. 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 our style. Enjoy now or cellar for three to five years.
