Visual Aspect: Clear pink

Nose: Aromatic with citrus and herbaceous notes

Palate: This wine is crisp, and offers many layers of flavor on the palate. Honeydew melon, grapefruit and tart apple flavors linger with a balanced acidity that adds a refreshing quality.

Food Pairing: Pairs with most dishes where white wines fit the bill and can be a wonderful pairing where light-bodied reds are suggested

Winery Notes: A second generation vineyard with some of the vines contributing to this wine planted just after the turn of the 20th century on the Pedroncelli Home Ranch. The newer plantings were propagated (cloned) from those venerable survivors–head pruned, hillside, hand picked vineyards. This unusually concentrated Zinfandel highlights ripe blackberry and spice notes
