Pedroncelli Cabernet Sauvignon Dry Creek Valley Three Vineyards 2006
“Rich aromas of ripe raspberry and cherry highlight this full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine is highlighted by bright acidity, in just the right amount to showcase the fruit. Plum, toasted oak notes and warm clove spice combine to round out the flavors. Framed by firm tannins and a lasting finish, our Three Vineyards Cabernet is ready to enjoy upon release or cellar up to five more years.”
Editorial Reviews for Pedroncelli Cabernet Sauvignon Dry Creek Valley Three Vineyards
Soft on the nose with gentle herb notes, cedary, pencil shaving oak, forest floor, with some mineral back ground tones and a touch of leather. Smells a bit Bordeaux like. Light bodied, a touch astringent but that is well balanced by the ripe fruit sweetness right behind the astringency. Lovely purity and freshness with judiciously used oak framing the bright red currant fruit. Pretty high acid for the genre but really well balanced and eminently drinkable with solid complexity and good length to the zesty cherry fruit. An impressive wine with its fine balance and surprising complexity. 90pts
Great deal for the price.
Tasted this wine at the Snooth Panel tasting: This was my favourite of the first flight that we tried at the Snooth tasting. This wine had aromas of red fruit with some spice and graphite. It was a soft wine that was balanced but not outstanding.
A very soft cedar nose, with some herbal tones. Medium bodied and a bit astringent - thin for me, but everyone else liked it. Well priced and a good deal, just not for me.
Light nose, hints of oak also light in the mouth with some burnt & sour cherry flavors. Although the structure is well-balanced between tannins and acidity, I found the wine to be a bit thin for my tastes.
