Everything you could ever want out of a zinfandel. Great full creamy mouthfeel. Nice oak and sweetness. Part of my dinner with this was black pepper and potato pierogies which really countered the pepper of this wine and gave this some extra sweetness. Same quality as any Ridge Zinfandel at $5 less.

Very bright red fruit and cocoa. Significant alcohol heat. Extremely long fruity finish with little oak. This wine is BERRYLICIOUS. Me likey. Do not decant as it will most likely fall apart in the decanter after an hour or so.

Very drinkable and pleasant to the palate. I love that it is organic, but don't let that stop you! Just the right amount of spice for drinking with friends or with food.

A very refreshing wine. Not typical of a Zin. I noticed that the smell was that of a classic zinfandel, being peppery and fruity. I thought the taste was more fruity and reminded me of classic merlot flavors. Not peppery enough for my taste but altogether a decent wine. A good red to drink with oily fish, and red meat. Great for summer bar-b-q's.

Under the leadership of Paul Dolan, former President of Fetzer Vineyards, Parducci are committed to socially responsible and environmentally sound agriculture and winemaking methods while working to enhance the quality, recognition and perception of Mendocino County Wines. The winery, the oldest in Mendocino, was certified as organic by CCOF in and all vineyards are either certified as or in transition to organic and biodynamic status. 150 acres practice Fish Friendly Farming whereby the use of pesticides and other controls which could be damaging to fish, are kept to an absolute minimum. Bob Swain, who has been Parduccis winemaker since 1997, continues at the winery, making the shift from conventional operations to organic farming and sustainable business practices. Says Paul Dolan; We are clear about what we want; an environmentally and socially conscious winery making great wines from Mendocino. We want to have fun, reaching out to new audiences with each wine carrying a fresh look and message Grapes: 94% Zinfandel, 3% Syrah and 3% Petit Sirah (organically grown) Vineyards: 53% Mendocino County, 47% Amador County Vinification: Handcrafted exclusively from organically grown grapes and also vinified organically, the wine was blended with small amounts of organic Syrah and Petit Sirah and ages 14 months in American and French oak. Alcohol: 14.9% Taste: Burst from the glass with jammy, blackberry and brambleberry aromas, augmented by tantalizing spice and earth tones. On the palate, the wine is rich, deep and juicy with big, spicy, blackberry and black raspberry flavours that are beautifully balanced and enriched by subtle chocolate tones. Serve: Enjoy this youthful, exuberant Zinfandel with grilled red meats and sausages, hearty red-sauce pastas, barbequed ribs and flavoured cheeses.

Wine Tasting NotesThe Mendocino County Zinfandel in this bottle includes fruit from the Dolan family's vineyard south of Talmage. Paul Dolan's old friend, Frank Alviso, provided the Amador County component for this wine. Mendocino County gives this wine its jammy berry quality. Amador County lends a distinctive peppery spice. Together these opposites attract into a perfect marriage.
