Pedroncelli 'Three Vineyards' Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

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

Since 1927, when John Pedroncelli, Sr. purchased vineyard and a small winery in Sonoma County's Dry Creek Valley, two elements remain unchanged: the exceptional place the Pedroncelli family farms vineyards, and the family's dedication to making fine wines. John Pedroncelli began his winemaking career as a child working side by side with his father, John Sr. learning from the ground up. After World War II and his service in the US Coast Guard, he graduated from Santa Rosa Junior College and then attended many winemaking classes at University of California at Davis. John’s style is Pedroncelli’s style—wines that are flavorful and balanced to reflect the region’s characteristics—he allows the wines to speak for themselves. As a family winery who has farmed for 80 years in the Dry Creek Valley, we want the next generations to be able to continue farming in an environmentally sensitive way. The most important statement we can make about our wine is that we are here for the long term and protecting the environment is one way we will achieve that goal. At Pedroncelli Winery, we practice sustainable winegrowing and, over the years, we have been reducing water use, building healthy soil, and protecting the vineyard environment. This is a comprehensive approach to vineyard management that involves all aspects of farming including human resources, viticulture, soil management, water management, pest management, habitat management, and wine quality. Tasting Room Our tasting room is open 10am to 4:30pm daily, except major holidays. Read less

Had the 2007. Big and Fruity. It was perfect with Filet Mignon.

not too thick, not too oaky. Goldilocks would approve of this wine. Just extremely well balanced with some definite aging potential. but even at this young age it handles itself extremely well.

nice peppercorn finish. really feel it on the back of the throat. The front end is loaded with flavors from IHOP berry syrup. Kinda hard to explain. I did like it though. should age well for a few years.

Sensational old world type Cab. Be sure to let it breathe first. If you have a decanter, this is the time to use it.

Deep maroon color in the glass. Aromas of ripe plum, black currantand toasty oak follow through on the palate. The concentrated flavorsand great structure along with firm tannins framing the wine lead to afinish that is simply elegant. Obviously this wine has no connection toa world famous British Special Agent. It's simply the name of a vineyardblockSauvignon, Cabernet Sauvignon.

Wine Tasting NotesRich, violet red color. Layers of blackberry and cherry laced with a complementary hint of green pepper-like spiciness. The mouth lends itself to a bright acidity, in just the right amount to showcase the fruit. Lingering spice and firm tannins round out the finish. Our Three Vineyards Cabernet is ready to enjoy upon release or cellar up to five more years.
