Pedroncelli Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley Mother Clone 2004
At Pedroncelli, our Zinfandel style is to showcase the unique characteristics of Dry Creek Valley. Our grapes are hand-picked with scrupulous attention paid to harvesting and to the gentle handling they receive at the winery. The grapes were harvested the first three weeks in September at an average of 24.5 Brix and lots are fermented separately in stainless steel tanks. The cellar crew does three pumpovers per day—this process adds softness and extracts color and flavor from the skins. Following fermentation, the wine is aged in American oak barrels for 15 months.

Deep purple-red in color, this is a full-bodied wine with many classic Dry Creek Valley characteristics: aromas and flavors of ripe boysenberry, jammy with subtle coffee and butterscotch accents. This is a concentrated Zinfandel that offers a nice balance of fruit, spice and tannin. The finish is long and packed with flavor.
Aged 12 months in American Oak.
