The Grapes of Rock

Metal snobs and wine snobs have a lot in common.

They're both knowledgeable and both like stuff they'd never admit to in public. And both know one truth: if it ends in a vowel, it'll probably rock.

Pedroncelli? Aw, yeah! I used to love them back in '85! They had that logo with the lightning bolts in place of the letter l's and that big hair guitarist. You remember, right? Wine Metal gave them their third album an unprecedented 9.2 flamin' axes!

Now, some people got into the band with that so-called hit they did, "Port Vertical," but REAL "'Celli Bellys" (that's what we called ourselves) knew it was more "Invisible Touch" and less "Supper's Ready," you know? It was all right, but they could have made it amazing.

Naw, for my money, the 'Celli brought their a-game with "Mother Clone," a metal opera set in the year 2247. Raspberry leads and allspice in the back, and every taste had bing cherry and strawberry flavors. And don't forget the subtle black pepper work from the bass player. Although, I have to say, his solo album? Pffft. Too close to jazz. I mean, good for him for trying stuff and all, but that ain't metal.

Anyway, if you hear about Pedroncelli coming back through on some Monsters Of Wine tour, let me know, okay? I don't care which 6-pack it is, it's still gonna be a great show.

What? That's what you came to tell me? They ARE in town? BOTH line ups?

Dude. Duuuuude. Tell me you already bought us tickets.

Features

2011 Pedroncelli Zinfandel, Mother Clone, Sonoma County, Dry Creek Valley 750ml 6-Pack

Our Mother Clone is a classic Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel. Aromas of raspberry and allspice lead to Bing cherry and strawberry flavors framed by subtle black pepper spice. Well integrated flavors with well balanced acidity and warm toasty oak are a hallmark of our style. Enjoy now or cellar for three to five years.

Mother Clone Vineyard Sources: Pedroncelli’s historic Zinfandel vineyards are located on the hillsides surrounding the winery, on the ranch originally purchased by John Pedroncelli Sr. in 1927 and planted to Zinfandel since 1904. Our Zinfandel vines are head-pruned and hand picked, a second generation vineyard cloned from the original “Mother” vines of which one quarter of an acre exist today. Although a small part of the blend, the fruit from these 100-year-old vines is included. Along with the grapes from our estate vineyards, it has been a tradition to include two other old vine and heritage vineyards comprising a third of the blend.

Winemaking: The third cool growing season in a row for our vineyards included a lower yield and delayed ripening. We harvested the grapes over the last week of September, before the rain. The resulting fruit retained well developed flavor, outstanding balance and deep quality of fruit. During fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, the cellar crew performed daily pumpovers—extracting color and flavor from the skins. The wine was aged in American oak barrels for 12 months. A touch of Petite Sirah (10%) adds layers of color, structure, and tannin to our Zinfandel.

1927

And John Pedroncelli, Sr. bought a vineyard and winery in Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County. Since then, four generations of Pedroncellis have weathered Prohibition, wine booms and busts, and changing tastes. And they’re still a family-owned operation making acclaimed premium wines. Wherever you are now, Sultan of Swat and Silent Cal, this next glass is for you.
