    • Wine Review Online

      92 Points: “Year after year Pedroncelli produces solid, satisfying, and often sumptuous wines, especially the reds.  The winery’s Zinfandels rank among the best anywhere, and its Cabernets do not lag far behind.  This wine, for example, tastes classic.  It is beautifully proportioned, with no element in excess, and a beautiful sense of balance that extends from the bouquet through the finish.  If they’re honest, not many over $100 Napa Cabernets can say the same.” Paul Lukacs,

    • Wine of the Week: Highly Recommended, Press Democrat
