Pedroncelli Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley Mother Clone 1999
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.
