One of our most compelling deals to date! 3 favorite, highly recommended wines (Cabernet, Merlot and Zinfandel) from one of our very favorite and most popular producers, Pedroncelli Winery.
Welcome to pure liquid delight...
This is truly a no-brainer, auto-buy, can't miss deal. We've offered a number of different wines from Pedroncelli in the past and they have consistently been some of our most popular offers.
Today, we've packaged up our three most popular Pedroncelli wines (you get two bottles of each) and are offering them here at a substantial discount from their normal $24 price tags.
Today's 6-pack includes:
- 2 bottles of the Pedroncelli Three Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon which also has 6% Cabernet Franc, 4% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot and 2% Malbec from three vineyards in the northern end of Dry Creek Valley. The wine is aged for 14 months in French oak, 30% new.
- 2 bottles of the Pedroncelli Bench Vineyards Merlot which comes from three vineyard blocks in the estate vineyard. It is aged 14 months in American oak, 30% new.
- 2 bottles of the Pedroncelli Mother Clone Zinfandel which includes 9% Petite Sirah. The grapes come from a ranch planted to Zinfandel since 1904 and purchased by John Pedroncelli Sr in 1927. Most of the vineyard was re-planted in the 80s using vines cloned from the originals (hence the name) but the wine also includes fruit from the remaining 110+ year-old "Mother" vines. It spends 12 months in American oak, 30% new.
It's the perfect chance to try a variety of different wines that all have a long history of high scores and gold medals. We rate all three of them at 91-93 points.
For the next two days you can get 2 bottles of the 2019 Pedroncelli Three Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon, 2 bottles of the 2020 Pedroncelli Bench Vineyards Merlot and 2 bottles of the 2020 Pedroncelli Mother Clone Zinfandel for a total of 6 bottles for $94.99, or $15.83 a bottle.

Let's take a look at the Cabernet, first. Today's deal includes 2 bottles.
From the winery:
Estate fruit was harvested from the northern end of Dry Creek Valley, where these Bordeaux varieties excel. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot were hand-picked just a mile from the winery. Each develop exceptional character on the vineyard sites situated on the valley bench. The vines receive the right amount of sun and cooling fog which develops optimal flavors in the grapes. Careful vineyard management during the growing season defines the style even more.
Aromas of dark ripe berries, dried herbs and earthy notes introduce this medium bodied Cabernet Sauvignon. Round tannins are framed by cherry, plum and blackberry fruit followed by highlights of oregano and mocha toast notes. Great structure and good acidity combine with a long finish framed by toasted notes and spice. Enjoy upon release or cellar up to ten more years.
Produced & Bottled by Pedroncelli Winery
The 2019 Pedroncelli Three Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon begins with a very inviting aroma of ripe dark berries plus succulent notes of dried herbs and flowers and even a little spice, cola and vanilla.
This delicious, medium to full-bodied wine is super drinkable with dark, juicy fruit and wonderful spice notes plus great balance. Notes of cola, chocolate and coffee under the fruit lead into the long, dry, grippy finish which also has a bit of oaky spice.
Just as good on day, 2, this one has some nice aging potential over the next 5-10 years too. This is quite an amazing bargain at this low price so stock up!
2019 PEDRONCELLI THREE VINEYARDS CABERNET SAUVIGNON
Up next is the Merlot. Today's deal includes 2 bottles.
From the winery:
The source for our Merlot comes from three vineyard blocks off our estate vineyard located along Dry Creek Road from vineyard planted over 5 years beginning in 1990. Bench Vineyards, the name chosen for this wine, describes the natural benches that flank Dry Creek Valley and rise gradually into the steep hills. Characterized by sloped topography and gravelly/rocky residual soils, the unique growing conditions combine to bring out the best in our Merlot.
Aromas of dark red fruit and a touch of warm cooking spices. Flavors of cherry and plum are showcased with a vanilla oak toast. Medium bodied with mild tannins follow through to a round and fruity finish. A beautifully balanced wine.
Produced & Bottled by Pedroncelli Winery
The 2020 Pedroncelli Bench Vineyards Merlot opens with an absolutely lovely, almost dusty aroma of dark fruit with touches of warm spice, vanilla, cedar and licorice. It's a fantastic start.
It only takes one sip to know that this is another excellent wine from Pedroncelli. Smooth and very satisfying with that signature round Merlot mouthfeel, it features delicious juicy dark fruit intermingled with excellent baking spice. Everything just works together perfectly.
It ends with a dry, savory and long finish with a bit of that dustiness from the nose returning along with lingering juicy fruit and continuing spice.
Excellent! And this one is just a baby. As always with these wines from Pedroncelli if you can resist drinking them in the short term (good luck!) you will be highly rewarded once they have a few years of age.
2020 PEDRONCELLI BENCH VINEYARDS MERLOT
And finally we've got the excellent Zinfandel. Today's deal includes 2 bottles.
From the winery:
The Pedroncelli house is founded on Zinfandel. It was the first grape planted in the early 1900s, it was the first wine Giovanni made after Prohibition ended and it was also the first varietal we labeled under our name in 1947. Using the budwood from the mother vineyard to clone a second generation carries our vineyard story forward, echoing the generations of our family. The fruit from three generations of these “mother” vines are part of the blend as well as fruit from the Bushnell and Giovannoni vineyards.
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.
Produced & Bottled by Pedroncelli Winery
The 2020 Pedroncelli Mother Clone Zinfandel opens with a wonderful aroma of blackberry, plum, baking spice, licorice and touches of vanilla that all combine seamlessly.
Taking a sip reveals a smooth, lovely, medium to full-bodied wine filled with juicy dark berry fruit, more wonderfully integrated spice, vanilla and a little cola. It's flavorful but not over the top and quite well-balanced. It tastes similar to the 2019 vintage we previously offered although it has a bit more oak influence at this point, which is likely just because it is younger.
Black pepper and a touch of smoke lead into the dry, very long finish of this fantastic wine.
And while it's drinking amazingly well now (and maybe even slightly better on day 2), we know from experience that the wines from Pedroncelli get even better with age so don't be afraid to stock up.

"Have had nothing but great bottles since I started ordering your recommendations. Thanks so much! "
"We've gotten in on three of the deals and have been VERY happy with the value. I originally was going to do a wine club thing but the insider deal appeals to me much more."

"Just got my 6 bottles and having my first glass. WHY, WHY didn't I buy a case??!!"
