Pedroncelli is a house founded on Zinfandel.  It was the first wine they made and the first varietal they ever labeled.  It is their flagship wine.  Four generations of the family have been perfecting the art of Zinfandel since their founding in 1927.  Pedroncelli Winery is one of Dry Creek's most historic and beloved properties.  For nearly a century, they've been crafting exceptional wines in Dry Creek Valley and are Sonoma County legends.  They make California wines with an Old-World twist.  All of Pedroncelli's wines are estate grown and bottled to produce elegant, charming and balanced wines.  Pedroncelli crafts stunning wines at a great price.  The Mother Clone Vineyard is one of the estate's most prized plots and is home to some original vines that are over 100 years old.  The Mother Clone Zin is a perennial store favorite and constantly wins awards in various wine competitions and praise from the wine press.  The 2020 Pedroncelli Mother Clone Zinfandel took home 96 Points and a Double Gold in this year's North Coast Wine Challenge.  It's lush, smooth, deep, and rich.  It has notes of blackberries, blueberry jam, dark berry succulence, milk chocolate flavors, and warm baking spices.  The berry-spice combination with a touch of pepper on the rounded finish is a hallmark of the Pedroncelli style.  This classic Dry Creek Zin is elegant and full-bodied with a lengthy finish.  Enjoy!  

Double Gold Medal, 96 Points - 2023 North Coast Wine Challenge

"Richness, sweetness, lushness, ripe yet structured. Purple floral perfume." 

Tasting Panel, 93 Points 

"A hearty and ripe yet elegant style with rich notes of mocha, a slathering of blackberry reduction, and a creamy licorice finish." 

Wine Enthusiast, 90 Points 

"Smooth, deep and rich, this luxurious, high-octane wine is saturated with ripe berries, blueberries and milk-chocolate flavors wrapped in moderate, melted tannins that lend a plush mouthfeel. The winemaker used 9% Petite Sirah and aged this wine in partially new American oak barrels." 

Wine Spectator, 90 Points 

"A gutsy red that's easy to drink, with lively blackberry, licorice and savory peppercorn flavors that build toward zesty tannins. Drink now through 2030." 

James Suckling, 90 Points 

"Notes of ripe blackberries and blueberry jam with dark spices and flowers. Full body. Mellow and sleek with dark berry succulence and hints of bitter spices. Lengthy finish." 

Winemaker Notes: 

Our Mother Clone is a classic ‘Dry Creek’ Zinfandel with aromas of ripe red berries with a touches of cinnamon, vanilla and white pepper spice. Red cherry flavors combine with vanilla, licorice and warm baking spices. The berry-spice combination, so typical of Dry Creek Zin, includes a touch of pepper with the rounded finish which are a hallmark of our style. Enjoy now or cellar for three to five years."
