Pedroncelli Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley Mother Clone 2006
Deep garnet red in color, our Mother Clone Zinfandel is full bodied with many classic Dry Creek Valley characteristics: aromas of ripe blackberry and spice, jammy fruit flavors framed with subtle black pepper. This is a concentrated wine that offers a great balance of fruit, spice and tannin combined with a long, lush finish. Enjoy now or cellar for three more years.
Editorial Reviews for Pedroncelli Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley Mother Clone
This value priced bottling has a low key nose that is very true to type with a fine blend of earth, cocoa, and mixed red and black raspberry fruit that has just a touch of smoky, toasty, vanilla scented oak influence. In the mouth this offers a restrained, easy drinking style with bright acidity and soft tannins. There is a lovely touch of funky earth right up front followed by fresh and friendly slightly spicy red berry fruit. This finishes with decent length with a touch of tar and spice and while I would like to see a bit more intensity both on the nose and the palate this is recognizable, typical Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel. 86pts
standard textbook zin. the finish is a little astringent for my tastes, but the upfront flavors are nice.
Just arrived about two hours into it. Big on cherries. A little spice. Fair finish.
Dark berries, cherries, and some spice in the nostrils. Moderate tannins, good spice. Not a bad one.
Lots of dark berries. Good spice on the nose as well... Nice tannins. Spice comes through big time in the mouth. Good vino here!
Had this Zin with some BBQ ribs the other night... Nice full body with many dry creek characteristics!
Jammy with a touch of pepper. This will be my go-to wine for summer BBQ!
Nice berry flavors with a touch of pepper. Loved it with grilled tomato, basil and mozzarella pizza!
