Pedroncelli 2018 "Friends Red" Sonoma County
Fall is here and it’s time to start the annual party season! Football games, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and of course the big month of December. For our October Wine of the Month we wanted a crowd-pleasing, ripe and juicy red that would be inexpensive enough to buy by the case for the season of entertaining. As soon as we got this little red blend in the glass, we knew we had found our special wine; rich cherry, blackberry, chocolate, and subtle spice burst from the glass and on the palate. The wine is smooth and simply gulp-able! We think this wine is perfect for game day appetizers, but is equally as enticing as a stand-alone sipper!
Pedroncelli is an historic family winery that dates back to 1927, and is now run by the third generation up in Dry Creek Valley in the heart of Sonoma wine country. The company is now 70% women-owned and has a woman winemaker to boot!
This wine is a blend of Zinfandel, Merlot, Petite Sirah, and Syrah, aged for 11 months in 20% new American oak barrels. The result is velvety, rich, and so easy to drink. Do yourself a favor and give this one a try, we’re sure you’ll want to share with friends!
