Winemaker's Notes:

Bouquet of black cherry, warm spice and plum. Flavors of black currant, freshly ground black pepper, and tart cherry highlight the taste. The subtle toasty oak complements the rich fruitiness in the mouth. Lush and full bodied, with medium tannins and a lasting finish. You can look forward to cellaring a bottle or two seeing how the wine will develop in 3-5 years or enjoy it for dinner tonight.
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.
