It's back! A fabulous INSIDER DEAL from one of the original Dry Creek Valley wineries, the Bulk Buy rated Pedroncelli Mother Clone Zinfandel.
We've got an extra special treat for you today with another wine from one of our all-time favorite wineries, Pedroncelli! If you've been waiting to take advantage of one our Insider Deals, you can't go wrong with this one.
We've offered a number of wines from Pedroncelli here including the previous vintage of the Mother Clone Zin and they have all been extremely well received. Of course, if you've bought any of those you know just how special these wines are and can skip right on down to the buy button. (Can you say "Autobuy"?) For those unfamiliar with Pedroncelli, let us give you a little history...
We had a chance to visit the winery a few years ago and spend some time with Jim Pedroncelli, who along with his brother John, bought the winery from their father in 1963.
John Sr started the winery in 1927 (during Prohibition!) and managed to stay in business by selling grapes to home winemakers. By the time the 21st amendment was passed (repealing Prohibition) the winery was one of just four remaining in Dry Creek Valley. Now 90 years later they are on to the fourth generation!
Over the years we've had a chance to taste many wines from Pedroncelli and have always been impressed, but one of our favorites is the Mother Clone Zinfandel. We even snapped this picture of a previous vintage in barrel when we visited.
The Pedroncelli Mother Clone Zinfandel has an extremely reasonable SRP of just $19 (not to mention a long list of gold medals and 90+ scores over the years) but for the next day we're slashing that price by almost 35%.

The Pedroncelli Mother Clone Zinfandel is 90% Zinfandel and 10% Petite Sirah from Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County, California. 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.
From the bottle:
Our family has called Sonoma County home since 1927. We've been making wine for four generations and sharing them with generations of wine lovers. Hand picked from hillside vineyards, our old-vine Mother Clone Zinfandel is a great expression of Dry Creek Valley character, balancing jammy blackberry flavors and black pepper spice.
Produced and Bottled by Pedroncelli Winery
The 2018 Pedroncelli Mother Clone Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel begins with a beautiful mix of aromas that sucks you right into the glass. Blackberry, plum, baking spice and touches of vanilla 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 and a little cola. It's flavorful but not over the top and quite well-balanced. 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, we know from experience that the wines from Pedroncelli get even better with age so don't be afraid to stock up on this one.
