I may have found my new GO-TO red blend. From Sonoma County, Pedroncelli Winery is one that is new to me, but has been in Sonoma County since 1927. I discovered this red blend at my local WinCo. My wife and I are planning a trip this summer to Sonoma, so thought this was a great early segue into what me might be sampling. And if this wine is any indication, it is going to be VERY good.
It is a blend of Merlot, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Syrah and Sangiovese . . .expertly well blended I must say. The nose is loaded with dark fruit as the Merlot and Zin jump out of the glass. A slight whiff of baking spice also greets. The initial taste is warm and slightly spicy, but silky smooth throughout. The long finish lingers like a good friend. This wine is superbly balanced and inviting. I must go back for more. It would really stand out with some BBQ ribs or steak . . . glorious!! And all this for a nominal fee of $9. I will be stocking up
