      91 Points. "A perfect late summer/early fall wine, this rosé is both refreshing and substantial as it balances deliciously between fruit, a touch of spice, and refreshing acidity.  It’s very food friendly as it has enough flavor and weight to shine as an aperitif wine or to be paired with chicken, pork and pasta, as well as softly spicy foods such as Asian noodle dishes." Marguerite Thomas Oct 6, 2020

    • Wine of the Week: Jeff Siegel, Wine Curmudgeon

      "The Pedroncelli rose is always top-notch every vintage, but the 2019 is one of the best I have tasted from anywhere this rose season, and certainly and among the best the winery has made in many years. It isn’t especially heavy, and the spice – and even a little pepper – is pleasingly noticeable in the middle, after a burst of zinfandel-ish berry fruit. Plus, the wine finishes cleanly and doesn’t feel syrupy or overdone in the mouth."

    • Please the Palate, Allison Levine

      Everything is Coming Up Rosés! "Everyone knows about white Zinfandel, but the Pedroncelli Rosé of Zinfandel is nothing like a white Zinfandel. This wine is a deep bright pink color and has aromas of forest fruits, cherries, strawberries and raspberries. The wine has a nice, creamy weight on the mid-palate and delicate acidity. This is a wine crying out to be paired with anything on the grill."

    • Wine of the Month: Along the WineRoad

      "Looking for a Rosé with a pedigree? Then cast your gaze upon Pedroncelli 2019 Rosé of Zinfandel. Pedroncelli has been making Rosé for over 60 years, and they have the style dialed in with this soft pink hued example that’s teeming with rich flavor and great body. The nose is like rose petal cotton candy with a strawberry-cherry vibe. The flavors are bright and juicy with notes of blood orange and sweet Bing cherry grounded with spicy notes of galangal and bergamot. Sharp and clean it’s the ultimate refresher on a hot summer day. Pair with a spicy gumbo or grilled shrimp in garlic sauce." Marcy Gordon
