Winemaker's Notes:

Ripe aromas of cherry, strawberry and spice highlight this Merlot. The supple texture, firm tannins, and lively flavors of cherry, plum and clove blend nicely. The finish is balanced with hints of tea and anise.
My Notes:

About  Pedroncelli Winery:

Pedroncelli Winery has come a long way since 1927, when John Pedroncelli, Sr. purchased vineyards and a small winery in Sonoma County's Dry Creek Valley. Today, the vineyards are planted to premium grape varieties, the winery is filled with modern equipment, and wines bearing the Pedroncelli name grace tables from coast to coast. But two elements from 70 years ago remain unchanged: the exceptional place the Pedroncelli family grows grapes, and the family's dedication to making fine wines.
