Pedroncelli Winery & Vineyards Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley Pedroni-Bushnell Vineyard 2003
This Zinfandel was fermented separately in new, small capacity tanks giving better skin/juice ratio…better for extraction. The wine is given three pumpovers per day, increasing color and flavor from contact with the cap (grape skins and seeds). Following fermentation and pressing, the young wine was transferred to small French and American oak barrels to age for thirteen months. The time in the barrel added complexity and smoothness to the wine.
Food Pairings for Pedroncelli Winery & Vineyards Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley Pedroni-Bushnell Vineyard
Very fragrant nose of raspberry and black pepper (a classic Dry Creek attribute!). Concentrated flavors. Has great structure, and is rounded and full in the mouth, with a long, lingering finish laced with slight toasty undertones. A great re-debut for this wine!
Notes: 25% new oak
|Total Acidity: 0.69 grams per liter|
