User Reviews for Pedroncelli Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley Mother Clone

Winemaker's Notes:

The 1999 harvest brought in a ripe crop and was unhindered by the small yields of the previous year. The fruit was crushed into stainless steel tanks and fermentation took six days. Frequent pumping-over of the juice over the skins during this time brings to the new wine a substantial increase in color and flavor intensity. The young zinfandel was aged in medium toast oak barrels for 12 months in order to develop smoothness and complexity.

Tasting Notes:

""Deep purple-red in color; full-bodied and very plush. Aromas and flavors of ripe blackberry, raspberry, cherry, spice and black pepper. Our Mother Clone is balanced harmoniously in flavor, texture and tannin. The rich flavors are generous and lasting."
