Parducci Small Lot Pinot Noir 2017
Mouthfilling, ripe and generous, this medium to full-bodied wine packs a lot of flavor into a big but soft frame. Black cherry, blueberry and a hint of chocolate provide plenty to appreciate while mild tannins and soft acidity keep the structure gentle. Aged 12 months on a combination of French and American oak.
Vegan, produced in a "California Certified Sustainable Winery" (CCSW).

Parducci Wine Cellars, the oldest winery in Mendocino County, aged this vibrant expression one year in French and American oak. On the heels of perfumed roses and heady scents of forest leaves, flavors of ripe and sour cherries merge with dark blue fruit.

In 1944, Parducci produced one of the first varietal bottling of California Zinfandel. This wine signaled the arrival of California as a premium winegrowing area and of Parducci Wine Cellars as the producer of quality wines. Two years later, we made the first varietal bottling of California Petite Sirah and today we are still the largest producer of Petite Sirah with just over 20,000 cases.
Parducci is "Family Farmed," locally owned and operated in California's Mendocino County. We are committed to sustainable winegrowing practices that yield top quality grapes and wines while protecting the environment and supporting our community and local farmers.
Internationally recognized for gorgeous, pure fruit combined with great elegance, California Pinot noir thrives among the state’s cooler, coastal zones. Characterized by eclectic flavors and aromas of strawberry, black cherry, plum and potpourri with notes of forest floor, mushroom or black tea, the best California Pinot noir boast a supple texture and good acidity, giving them the ability to improve with age.
Credited with the beginning of Pinot noir’s glory in California, two growers, Joe Rochioli and Joseph Swan in the late 1960s independently planted Pinot noir vineyards in the Russian River Valley of Sonoma County. Today Sonoma County remains the leading producer of Pinot noir in the state, and Pinot noir is the leading red grape in the county, achieving its highest potential, in the Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast.
